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:

We use, Maxicom, Rain Bird’s irrigation control system. Currently it will pause watering during rain and cancel the next schedule if it reaches a predetermined amount. After our Irrigation Supervisor completes the next phase of Maxicom training we will incorporate the linked weather station and the system will make automated adjustments for evapotranspiration.
