About water restrictions
During daylight savings each year, Stage 1 water restrictions come into effect.
Stage 1 is to remind you to be mindful of your water usage as the weather warms up.
From 10am to 5pm you may only use handheld hoses for watering. Outside these times you may water using other methods, such as sprinklers, irrigations systems etc.
Outside of daylight savings, there are no water restrictions imposed unless otherwise specified. From time to time, certain areas may have temporary water restrictions due to emergencies eg bushfire or infrastructure issues.
Our water restrictions are triggered based on supply and usage. For full details, please see our Water Restrictions Policy.
Domestic and Commercial Restrictions: Watering from 10am to 5pm is not allowed, unless you are using a handheld hose.
You must wait until after 5pm before using any other watering methods eg sprinklers, irrigation systems.
Domestic restrictions: You cannot hose down paved areas between 10am and 5pm unless required as a result of an accident, fire, health hazard or other emergency.
