"The private utility company that supplies water to Apple Valley, a working-class town in the high desert east of Los Angeles, has been ordered to cut back 28 percent. In Los Angeles, meanwhile, the superrich have been able to keep multiple pools filled without fines for excessive water use. Four years into the worst #drought in California's recorded history, districts are grappling with a mandatory order from the state to reduce water consumption by up to 36 percent. The contrast between the strict enforcement in Apple Valley and the unchecked profligacy in places like Bel Air has unleashed anger and indignation. @malmeidapix photographed Apple Valley while on #nytassignment."
