The CIR compiled the list in an effort to track down the notorious Wet Prince of Bel-Air, a homeowner responsible for wasting 12 million gallons of water in one year.
The investigation tagged Guber’s 9-acre wooded estate as a suspected culprit, guzzling anywhere from 2.8 million to 5.5 gallons of water a year. It earned the number 3 spot CIR’s list, behind Univision CEO Jerrold Perenchio (1) and entrepreneur Garry Winnick (2), whose estates swallow up 6.1 million and 4.6 gallons of water a year, respectively.
Guber has been the co-managing partner of Golden State, along with Joe Lacob since 2010. In 2012, he teamed up with Magic Johnson and a group of investors to purchase the Dodgers baseball team.READ MORE: VIDEO: Shoplifter Fills Up Backpack With Stolen Goods During Stroll Through San Francisco Walgreens
The sports mogul’s producer credits are too long to list but include such box-office hits as Batman, Les Misérables, The Color Purple and Rain Man. Guber’s films have grossed over $3 billion worldwide.
Guber bought his Bel-Air home in the early 1990s from ex-NBC chairman Grant Tinker (who once shared it with his wife Mary Tyler Moore). It boasts a 4-bedroom, 14,000 square foot main house, a 2,700 square foot “Yoga House” for his wife Tara, a pool, tennis court and lush landscaping with ferns, jasmine and subtropical vegetation.
