TexasET Network Landscape Watering Recommendations - "Cougar Central Austin"

No rainfall for last 2 weeks in central Austin. I recommend going with .50"(shade)-.75"(sunny areas)  this week to be safe. .75" is 2 start times on our 1 water day of 15 mins each for fixed spray systems, Rotors 2x 30 mins, MP rotators 1x 60 mins should be fine.
