Apply for a watering exemption

Apply for a watering exemption for your new lawn or garden, including roll-on lawn, runners, shredded lawn and seed.
Last updated:

An exemption will allow you to water your lawn or garden outside the watering roster, to help it establish. Both manual and automatic irrigation will qualify for an exemption.

Apply online on the day your new lawn or garden is installed, to ensure you make the most of your watering exemption period.

Exemption dates cannot be altered once it has been approved.

Different exemptions apply for different times of the year. You can find out more information about exemptions and conditions on the Water Corporation website or for more assistance contact Water Corporation.
