No Restrictions

What do they mean?

  • NO RESTRICTIONS - You may water gardens at anytime but please water wisely and conserve where you can
  • REDUCED WATERING - Hand-held hosing anytime. Sprinklers and unattended hoses may be used each day between:
    • 6am to 8am
    • 7pm to 9pm
  • RESTRICTED WATERING - Hand-held hosing only and only between the hours:
    • 6am to 8am
    • 7pm to 9pm
  • TOTAL WATERING BAN - No garden watering is allowed.
    • Restrictions for other types of water use may also apply (for example washing cars, filling pools etc) – refer to this page for any additional restrictions

Things to remember

  • Restrictions normally only apply to residential users - refer to this page for any restrictions that may apply to non-residential users
  • Sprinkler means any kind of mobile or fixed sprinkler system used for irrigation
  • Garden watering includes all outdoor gardens and lawns
  • Watering gardens during the heat of the day wastes water because so much of the water just evaporates
  • Normally, you may use your hose for purposes other than garden watering (such as washing a car) unless there is a total watering ban and such use has been prohibited
  • Please, always use water wisely, whatever you are using it for
