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:

Rain sensors, associated with most controllers, will skip watering if there was more than .25 inches of rain since the last watering cycle.

Additionally, PLU decided to shut off all of the irrigation meters around campus for the winter months as a way to save water and money.
