"---" 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:

The majority of Drew's grounds are not irrigated. Those around two of the campus buildings are only irrigated only in time of need when rain is scarce. The athletic fields are the most irrigated place on campus. These fields are equipped with rain monitors, which were just updated in spring 2011.
