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:

UMD now has areas with automatic irrigation systems that are operated by moisture sensors, such as those installed on the Engineering Fields (athletic fields). These sensors require water to be used only when the soil is too dry, instead of simply running the sprinklers on a timer.
