ENCINO, Calif. – Cyber-Rain, makers of web-based, central irrigation systems, announced a partnership with Weather Underground, providers of weather information.

“It’s a natural partnership,” added Alan Steremberg, president of Weather Underground. “Cyber Rain can make the most practical use of our data and allow everyone in our network to feel they are contributing to the rapidly growing water conservation effort.”
