The city of Rancho Santa Fe has identified one of the top water users as Marty and Pamela Wygod.
The Wygod’s water usage dwarfs that of the “Wet Prince of Bel-Air,” coming in at about 57 million gallons. The Wygods primary use for the water was irrigating their 109 acre estate. With water conservation in mind, the Wygods told the San Diego Union Tribune this:
“We’ve taken the lead in the state in the reduction of water consumption even though we have 109 acres, of which a large percentage is fruit trees or lemon groves,” Wygod said. “When we saw what was taking place with the (state’s) water shortage, we thought it was our responsibility to set the best example in the state.”
The Wygods replaced their natural lawn and infinity pool with a drought-tolerant garden.
