Yes you CAN still water!
Level 2 water restrictions came into effect in the Greater Sydney area on 10th December 2019. For the home owner, the biggest changes are:
*You can only use a watering can or bucket to water your garden before 10 am and after 4 pm
*You can only use drip irrigation or smart watering systems for a maximum of 15 minutes a day before 10 am and after 4 pm
*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
*You can only wash your vehicles with a bucket and sponge
*You need a permit to fill new or renovated pools and spas that hold more than 500L
