Due to the drying climate, the state government introduced water efficiency measures, including the introduction of restrictions on domestic sprinklers.
These restrictions include permanent efficiency measures, an annual winter sprinkler ban that applies to domestic sprinkler use and some non-domestic use, and can also include extra efficiency measures and restrictions from time to time such as extensions of the winter sprinkler ban period or other restrictions.
Domestic garden bore restrictions are imposed by the Water Agencies (Water Use) By-laws 2010. These by-laws are made by the Minister for Water, with advice from the Department of Water, under the Water Agencies (Powers) Act 1984.

Anyone found using a household bore between 9 am and 6 pm, or during the winter sprinkler ban, or outside their rostered days, can be fined $100.
