Pfft, these water restrictions are for the little people.
Barbra Streisand plans to give the palatial grounds of her Malibu, Calif., mansion an eco-friendly overhaul after The Post reported that several celebs have water-guzzling gardens despite the state’s devastating drought.
Babs even plans to let some of her plants go brown in an effort to save H2O, a source told The Post’s Linda Massarella.
Landscapers were seen working on her property Monday morning, though it was unclear if they were implementing the new plan.
Jeff Reinhardt of the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, which supplies many elite enclaves in the area, said small measures won’t cut it during this California crisis.
“Everybody thinks they’re doing something,” he said. “We’re appreciative of the small symbolic gestures, but sadly they substitute that for the larger, harder decision.”
Streisand isn’t the only liberal fraud caught breaking the rules.
California is currently in the fourth year of its worst drought in history, but the rich and famous residents of Los Angeles are still keeping up with the Kardashians when it comes to their over-the-top landscaping.
Residents across California have been demolishing pools, cutting back on showers and letting their lawns turn brown after experts estimated that there will be less than a year’s worth of drinking water left in the state’s reservoirs by the end of 2015.
But for the residents of Los Angeles’ wealthy enclaves, a $100 fine for wasting water is chump change and a fee they are apparently glad to pay in order to maintain their almost fluorescent green lawns.
Photographer John Chapple recently went out in a helicopter to photograph these private oasis and found the mega-mansions owned by Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and heiress Petra Stunt to be among the worst.
‘The Kardashian flowers and hedges are right in our face,’ a neighbor of West and Kardashian in Hidden Hills told the New York Post. ‘It’s disgusting. You walk by and you can smell the freshness.’
The reality star previously claimed that she was washing her hair only every five days in response to the drought, a move she called ‘a little excessive, maybe’.
