Water restrictions began Wednesday for 6 million residents in Southern California, as the state enters its third year of severe drought and what water officials say is the state’s driest year on record.

Residents and businesses must now limit their outdoor watering to one or two days per week or to a set volume of water.

The restrictions include cities such as Beverly Hills, Compton, and Los Angeles.

Those who violate the restrictions face thousands of dollars in fines.
