Winter is upon us!
Winter brings with it rain, cooler temperatures and lower evaporation rates meaning the plants in our gardens don’t need as much watering. It’s important we don’t waste our precious natural resource especially when plants get a sufficient amount of rainwater in the winter months.
In Perth, Mandurah and some parts of the South West the Water Corporation have put in place a winter switch off period for all sprinklers, running from 1 June to 31 August. The water sprinkler ban applies to all scheme and bore users. ⠀
We encourage all residents to make sure that your sprinkler system has been turned off. Don’t risk a fine and make sure your sprinkler system is set appropriately until the end of August.
