The City relies on groundwater pumped from groundwater wells owned and operated by the City of Downey to meet 100% of its potable water demands with the balance of its overall water demands met with eco-friendly recycled water. Consequently, Downey is able to provide low-cost water to its residents and businesses at better rates than many surrounding communities. Nevertheless, the multi-year drought conditions and diminishing water access, as well as the California Statewide 20x2020 Water Conservation Plan (with goals of 20% per capita decrease in water use by the year 2020), have made water conservation an ongoing priority for Southern California residents.
