It has not rained much this year so far - but that's normal.

Last year, Mundaring was the fullest I have seen it - it's not a very important dam for Perth anyway.

I think that, overall, the water situation is not too bad.

Half its long term average, but twice as much as last year.

'.... not too bad' !! Thats why the sprinkler/hosepipe has been extended.

'As announced by Water Minister Graham Jacobs, the winter sprinkler ban is here to stay.

When: 1 June to 31 August 2010

Where: Perth-Mandurah area and the South-West

Who: Applies to garden bores, scheme and over 600 licensed water users'

I actually agree with the winter ban - watering your garden in winter is a bit of overkill. Save the water for the summer.

From what I have read/heard, water management in WA is far superior to the rest of the country.
