Winter sprinkler switch off
The winter sprinkler switch off applies to all scheme and bore water users in Perth from 1 June to 31 August every year.
The City is adhering to the requirements of the winter sprinkler switch off, however sports ovals are permitted to irrigate during winter due to their frequent use, safety considerations and new planting. The City will be running very short irrigation cycles on its sports ovals to ensure its reticulation systems are operational.
