Water wisely!
As the seasons change, so do the watering needs of your lawn and garden. Use your irrigation system manually in Spring to take advantage of the cooler weather.

Most of us can also reduce our fixed spray sprinkler system run time by 2 minutes per station and still maintain a healthy garden


Find watering days for..
(Where there is no street number, use the lot number)


The watering days roster is set on your street number, so you don’t need to worry about your personal apartment or villa number.

So if you live at Unit 1, 22 Water Street, then you should use 22 in the watering days search.

If your property spans multiple street numbers, like 22–24 Water Street, then please use the higher of the numbers to find your rostered watering days. So in this instance, you would use 24 in the watering days search.

Customers who are witnessed breaching the sprinkler roster can receive a fine of $100.

You can report breaches at any time by completing our sprinkler breach form.

Sprinkler rosters were introduced in 2001 and made permanent across WA in 2007 to assist water efficiency measures.

Watering days are determined by the climatic conditions in the region you live in, and whether or not you use scheme or bore water. 

A permanent winter sprinkler ban applies to scheme and bore water users in Perth, Mandurah and some parts of the South West from 1 June–31 August every year. This saves about 4.5 billion litres of water each year.

Temporary water restrictions are short term measures imposed in times of drought or emergency in order to reduce demand and conserve water supply for essential needs. Water restrictions specifically target non-essential uses, such as garden irrigation. Water Corporation requests a temporary water restriction be enacted through the Minister for Water so essential needs are met.

Permanent water efficiency measures (PWEMs) are in place to ensure best practice for the efficient use of outdoor water use. They include the sprinkler watering rosters which are ongoing, rather than temporary. These measures were introduced in WA in October 2007 after a trial and extensive consultation. They are established via regulation administered by the Department of Water, and enforced by Water Corporation.
