How can I use CivilStorm to evaluate TSS removal efficiency in a detention pond?

Problem 31515

Solution

For this type of analysis, you would need to use EPA-SWMM features, so the solver needs to be set to Explicit (SWMM) in the calculation options.(Analysis>Calculation Options)

In the properties of the pond, there is a section called SWMM Extended Data. You can set Apply Treatment to True, and then enter a Treatment Collection for the TSS pollutant. The Treatment Collection will include an expression that the user will have to develop to compute pollutant removal.

We have a little information on this in the Help, but since this feature is taken directly from SWMM 5, the SWMM User Guide should also be helpful (see below)
