(c) Government agencies

On receiving reports relating to alleged non compliance by government agencies and on government operated land, drought advisory officers advise the parties that the ACT Government has a strategy to meet its 40% reduction overall across all areas. The strategy allows minimal irrigation on higher value community assets at the expense of low value assets.

If reports on Government property relate to inefficient water use (i.e. burst sprinklers heads, sprinklers on roads, sprinklers in rain or middle of day) the details of the reports are relayed to Canberra Urban Parks and Places for appropriate action.

(3) ACTEW advises that two Infringement Tickets had been issued to 26 November 2003:

(a) Individuals - one $200 infringement for the operation of sprinklers without an exemption during Stage 3 restrictions.

(b) Businesses or other enterprises - one $200 infringement for the operation of sprinklers by a business at a residential property in contravention of exemption conditions.

(c) Government agencies - nil

(4) ACTEW advises that during Stage 3 restrictions most non-compliance reports related to operating sprinklers (40%) and watering hours and days (33%); followed by motor vehicle washing (12%) and cleaning of paved areas (11%). These four categories account for 96% of all non-compliance reports received.
