"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Does the institution use weather data or weather sensors to automatically adjust irrigation practices?:
Yes

A brief description of how weather data or sensors are used:

Calsense provides a simple yet powerful tool to monitor daily evapotranspiration with the Calsense ET Gage. Used with the ET2000e irrigation controller, the ET Gage measures daily evapotranspiration, and is used to automatically calculate station run times so the irrigation system can apply the exact amount of water required for current weather conditions.
There are a total of 6 Calsense controllers currently in use out of a total of 40 irrigation zones.
