In December 2019 Level 2 water restrictions came into effect in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra region. The restrictions cover the use of drinking water and apply to activities such as car washing. They apply to all residents and businesses including new car Dealers.
Businesses washing a large number of vehicles such as car Dealers can apply for a water restrictions exemption for their business.
If your dealership relies on drinking water use as part of its operations, you’ll need to apply for an exemption by 31 January 2020.
Apply for a water restrictions exemption here.

Your business doesn’t need to apply for an exemption if the water you use isn’t drinking water.
