OP-T2-48: Weather-Informed Irrigation
|0.25 / 0.25||
Office of Sustainability
Does the institution use weather data or weather sensors to automatically adjust irrigation practices?:
A brief description of how weather data or sensors are used:
The Grounds Department has installed rain gauges on all irrigation systems to shut off sprinklers during rain. Grounds staff monitor the use of the irrigation systems and base the use of the system on the moisture content of the soil. Irrigation is not conducted during daytime hours to reduce evaporation.
