Kylie Jenner and Tyga Both Cited for Wasting Water During California Drought (Report)

Pin It
California is in the middle of a major drought and residents are being urged to cut back their water use in a big way. A big part of the "incentive" is that residents in many districts are being fined if they go above their allotted water use for the month.

There have been many photos online where celebrities have been "drought-shamed" as aerial views show their expansive lawns looking as lush as ever while other residents are letting theirs brown out in the name of saving water.

The Las Virgines Municipal Water District, which covers many of the wealthy suburbs outside of Los Angeles, has taken things a step further and hired a private security company to enforce the new rules about water use. For example, residents in the district are only allowed 15 minutes of outdoor water use two days a week and there can't be any runoff to the street or adjacent properties.

According to a report obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the agency began monitoring on June 1 and among the 203 violators were Kylie Jenner (who recently purchased a $2.7 million home in Calabasas) and Tyga (who rents a home nearby).

NBC Los Angeles reports that Kylie has actually been cited for two violations this summer and did receive a fine. Kylie and Tyga aren't the only celebs in the district who were cited. According to NBC, Denise Richards, Dr. Dre and David Hasselhoff. For what it's worth, David's rep told the site that his violation was for watering on the wrong day, which was an oversight that he's since rectified.
