the three LF measurements per line. The average LF of the three test containers per line (LF 1 ) and the run time (RT 1 ) were used to calculate a new irrigation run time (RT 2 ) based on a target LF (LF 2 ) of 25% according to: RT 2 = RT 1 × ( 100

, commercial water customers have seldom been the research and policy target by decision-makers and they overall seem less responsive to price and nonpricing conservation programs than residential customers in outdoor water conservation. The objective of this
