Have you changed your automatic sprinklers yet? We have!

Published on 21 January 2020


Council have arranged for all of our timing systems for the Automatic watering systems to only operate between the hours of 12 midnight and 4.00am as per the @taswater water restrictions.

Our parks team have been busily getting around our parks and ovals including;

  • Burnie park
  • West Park oval
  • Montello Soccer Ground
  • Wivenhoe Showground
  • Ridgley Recreation ground
  • City Offices Garden irrigation
  • Basalt Column Car Park
  • Burnie Waterfront
  • Oakleigh Park in South Burnie

Council will also look at reducing the watering regime at the Burnie Lawn Cemetery, this facility is not reliant on Tas Water but it will reduce the pressure on the water being drawn from the dam supplying the cemetery.

Council will also look at all other areas where hand watering of plants is conducted to reduce the amount of water used.
