dc.description.abstract Restrictions on outdoor water use have been a key element of the response to drought in metropolitan Melbourne. When stage 3A restrictions were introduced in April 2007, managers of grassed sportsgrounds mainly local councils were limited to watering 1 in 4 sites, and were required to make a 25% saving in water used outdoors. In late 2007, an allocation scheme was introduced as an alternative option available to councils for watering sportsgrounds. This research aims to inform the development of future drought response mechanisms, by providing insight into recent perspectives from Melbournes metropolitan local councils on watering sportsgrounds during drought. Through a series of semi-structured interviews, this research explored the underlying drivers, barriers, constraints and opportunities for efficient water management for grassed sportsgrounds.
