Problem Description

How does StormCAD or the StormCAD solver (GVF-Rational) handle active gutters from active catch basins going into inactive catch basins? 


With a gutter connected to an inactive catch basin, the flow in the gutters is directed to the "Lost Flow" section of the outfall results. If you look at the outfall properties, there is a section called "Result (Lost Flow)" any flow in gutter that is not connected to an active catch basin will be noted here.
