2.14 WATER See 6.4.1 at ASHRAE 189.1, which applies via Army sustainable design requirements. It limits establishment potable water irrigation to 70% of ET0 for turfgrass and 55% for other plantings. This would require some sort of evapotranspiration calculation and control, which suggests some sort of sensor being in place. 
Controllers and spray heads falling under the WaterSense criteria must be WaterSense labeled. If either will be used, include the WaterSense related submittals at SD-01 and SD-11 and add the following here:
Provide products and documentation meeting the requirements at Section [01 33 29 SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING][01 57 19.01 20 SUPPLEMENTAL TEMPORARY ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS] paragraph WATER EFFICIENT PRODUCTS AND SERVICES. See https://sftool.gov/greenprocurement/green-products/6/landscaping-products/270/weather-sensor-based-irrigation-control-technologies/0?addon=False.
