No dumping

No dumping

Especially during a drought, we tend to think that every bit or rain has got to help, right?

Well, maybe. Most of our water supply comes from rain and snow that falls during the winter in northern and eastern California. Groundwater is also an important part of Downey's water supplies, comprising about 30% of water used in an average year, and 60% or more in a drought year.

And what falls right here in Downey? Well, it pretty much just flows down the storm drains to the Pacific Ocean.
