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


Water Corporation Mid West Regional Manager, Steve Greeve, explained how the sprinkler roster worked. Sprinlker rosters are in place across Western Australia


“Communities north of Kalbarri and Kalgoorlie can use their sprinklers on alternate days,” Mr Greeve said.


“Communities south of, and including, Kalbarri and Kalgoorlie are subject to a two-day-per-week sprinkler roster. 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.”


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


Remember to only use your sprinklers once on your rostered day either before 9am or after 6pm. Those with a bore are able to water on additional 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


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