Watering & Sprinkler Days in Perth

WATERING DAYS FOR PERTH AND MANDURAH

Water supply in WA is being subject to the increased demand of a rapidly growing population and expanding industry. In addition the impact of a drying climate in the south-west of the state has created the requirement to manage the state’s water resources more efficiently and effectively, something we all need to be aware of.

Water restrictions apply to the use of scheme and bore water in both summer and winter.

SUMMER RESTRICTIONS APPLY 1 SEPTEMBER TO 31 MAY

The Sprinkler Roster 2 day a week scheme and 3 day a week applies to domestic scheme water and garden bore water use.

Check the Sprinkler Roster Chart below for your two rostered sprinkler watering days per week.

WINTER RESTRICTIONS APPLY 1 JUNE TO 31 AUGUST

A permanent winter sprinkler ban applies to all scheme and bore water users in Perth, Mandurah and some parts of the South West. This is a permanent water efficiency measure.

Hand held watering and maintenance testing of bores is still permitted, but anyone using their sprinklers between June and August risks a $100 fine.
