The Emergency Regulation mandates a 20% reduction in potable water use for all City water users focused on reducing non-essential water use including landscape irrigation.  The State has made non-compliance with such prohibitions punishable by a fine of up to five hundred dollars ($500) for each day in which the violation occurs. http://www.downeyca.org/gov/pw/utilities/water_conservation.asp
