Last week we told you about the biggest water guzzlers in the Hamptons. J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler, who in 2010 used 18.4 million gallons to keep his Bridgehampton estate looking lush, topped the list.
Now, The Wall Street Journal reports that there are also some serious water hogs in Palm Beach.
The biggest water user in the elite conclave is Terry Allen Kramer, a theatre producer and heiress of Allen & Co. co-founder Charles Allen, who lives on a 2.6-acre property that consumed 13 million gallons between June 2010 and May 2011.
Water usage has become a serious issue in West Palm Beach, which is currently suffering from the worst drought on record. As a result, authorities have limited landscape irrigation for all residents, including those in Palm Beach, to one time per week.
They have also ramped up enforcement in the area, according to the WSJ.
Among those who have received warnings are John L. Thornton, a former president of Goldman Sachs, Stephen Schwarzman, co-founder of the Blackstone Group and Howard Kessler, a credit card entrepreneur. Thornton also reportedly received a $125 citation.
Here’s the aerial view of Stephen Schwarzman’s estate on Ocean Boulevard, which used 7.5 million gallons of water last year. A spokesman for Schwarzman told the WSJ that the house has been compliant with restrictions since a warning.
