Level 2 Restrictions Apply from 10 December

Source: Sydney Water
Posted: 10 Dec 2019
You can use watering cans before 10 am and after 4 pm. You can't use a standard sprinkler, soaker hose, weeping hose, mist sprayer, tap timer or watering system outside specific watering times.
Water restrictions target outdoor water use, but there are some indoor water uses that are subject to restrictions, such as filling indoor swimming pools and water features, and operating car wash businesses in shopping centre car parks.

The biggest changes

  1. You can only use a watering can or bucket to water your garden before 10 am and after 4 pm.
  2. You can only use drip irrigation or smart watering systems for a maximum of 15 mins a day per watering zone, before 10 am and after 4 pm.
  3. You can only top up an existing pool or spa, using a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle, watering can or bucket for a maximum of 15 minutes a day. You can only do this to replace water lost through evaporation, not to replace water deliberately removed from the pool or spa.
  4. You can only wash your vehicles with a bucket and sponge.
  5. You need a permit to fill new or renovated pools and spas that hold more than 500 L.

Using drinking water for firefighting, testing and related activities is not restricted.

Find out about special exemptions for residential customers at the Sydney Water website.

The restrictions apply to everyone in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra. This includes all residents and businesses.
