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.
