Why water the lawn then?

Because the wife wants him to.

Here are the mean number of days per month there are clear days in Portland.

The clear days are the highest in July-Sept.

Here is the average temperatures and rainfall in Portland.

The warmest and driest months also coincide with the months as the number of sunny days - July-Sept.

Other that those three months, the weather in Portland is ideal for fescue - good rainfall and moderate temperatures. Personally, I'd have a grass that is best for the maximum number of days. In this case, it is my opinion that fescue is better than zoysia. For the less ideal three months period, he can either water or wear ear plugs.
