Under Water Wise Measures there are a number of activities for which you can apply for an exemption. These include pre-wetting a construction site, filling swimming pools and using twist nozzles. All of these activities can be applied for using the following forms:

How to apply

What to lodge with your application:

  • For pre-wetting of a construction site, you need an engineer's report.
  • For a twist nozzle for those people who can't use a trigger nozzle, you need a medical certificate.
  • To fill a swimming pool with SA Water drinking water, you need to provide proof of purchase of an approved pool cover.
