Information on Winter Sprinkler Bans

Tomorrow (June 1 2018)  you need to turn off your reticulation and water bore for the winter sprinkler bans. This involves households, businesses and councils in Perth, Mandurah and parts of the South-West and Great Southern.

Anyone who uses sprinklers from June to August risks a $100 fine.

Bore water users are allowed to flush sprinkler systems once a week on their normal rostered watering days, either before 9am or after 6pm, for 2 minutes per station to maintenance test their bore. Hand watering is permitted when needed. If you have just installed a new lawn you can apply for a new lawn exemption HERE

Any questions about the Winter Sprinkler Switch-Off can be answered at this Water Corporation website

Water Minister Dave Kelly reminded us that the switch-off saved about five billion litres of scheme water in winter 2017, enough water to fill up Optus Stadium five times.

Winter is a great time to consider a domestic water bore so you and your garden are ready for summer. Waiting times are shorter. Call us on 9246 0111 or go to our website HERE.

 

Use of water bores during winter sprinkler bans

Winter sprinkler bans are in place across Perth from June 1 to August 31.

This includes owners of domestic water bores. However bore owners are allowed to flush irrigation systems once a week on their rostered watering days, either before 9am or after 6pm, for about 2 minutes per station during winter. This helps keep not only the bore in working order but exercises both the solenoid valves and the sprinklers in the reticulation system.

During winter if you have an issue with your modern submersible bore or reticulation system it is a great time to call as we are not as busy and wait times are less.

Hand watering is permitted during the ban and customers can apply for an exemption for new lawns.
