Did you know there are sprinkler rosters in place across Western Australia? Water Corporation has reminded communities across the Great Southern and Esperance regions to check their sprinkler systems are set to the correct days.

 

Water Corporation Great Southern Regional Manager, Adrian Stewart, explained how the sprinkler roster worked.

 

“Households and businesses across the Great Southern and Esperance areas can use their sprinklers either before 9am or after 6pm, two days per week,” Mr Stewart said.

 

“Your allocated watering day is based on the last digit of your house or lot number. If there is no house number, the lot number is used.

 

“Remember sprinklers can only be used once on your rostered day, either before 9am or after 6pm.

 

“From 1 June to 31 August each year, a total winter sprinkler ban is in place for some areas across the Great Southern, including Albany, Denmark and Mount Barker.”

 

The best way to check your rostered sprinkler day is to visit Water Corporation’s website watercorporation.com.au/save-water/watering-days

 

Property owners receive a $100 fine if they are sighted breaching the sprinkler roster by an inspector, and a warning if they are reported by a member of the public.

 

If you witness anyone breaching the sprinkler roster, you can now report this online at watercorporation.com.au/breach

 

Those with a bore are able to use sprinkler systems on additional days.

 

If you have recently experienced a power outage, check your sprinkler system hasn’t been reset to operate every day.
