Watering days

Like most other urban areas in Western Australia, there is a watering roster to allow two days of watering a week before 9am and after 6pm.

The two day watering roster does not apply to bore users, but the 9am to 6pm daily restriction still applies.

There is also a Winter Sprinkler Switch-Off which applies to all scheme and bore water users from 1 June to 31 August each year.

Please check the following roster for your watering days. The last digit of your house number indicates watering days.

Watering Exemptions

If you are installing a new garden or lawn you can apply for a watering exemption which will allow you to water your lawn or garden outside the watering roster, to help it establish.

Please be aware a watering exemption may afffect your water use and result in a higher water bill. Watering more often to establish a new lawn or garden without a watering exemption is considered a sprinkler breach. 

Apply for a watering exemption using the form below. Your exemption will apply for up to 42 days from the day of planting during spring and summer. If your exemption is granted during autumn and winter then you are able to water for up to 35 days from the day of planting.
