Winter Sprinkler ban
The winter sprinkler ban is a permanent water efficiency measure starting each year on 1 June and ending on 31 August.
The bans apply to the Perth/Mandurah area and South West (Area 4), including Albany.
Who does the ban apply to?
The winter sprinkler ban applies to both domestic garden bores and scheme water users. It also applies to licensed groundwater users including local governments, schools, golf courses, government departments, universities, TAFE campuses, major parks, race grounds and businesses that irrigate areas of non-commercial turf, lawn and gardens.
Active sporting locations, such as schools and local government ovals, are permitted to irrigate during winter due to their frequent use, safety considerations and amenity planting.
New lawns and gardens registration
If you are establishing a new lawn or garden, you must register to enable sprinkler use between 9am and 6pm and during the winter ban period.
