SewerCAD (or the GVF Convex solver in SewerGEMS) is reporting a warning message stating that a wetwell is flooded (tank is full), but the model is running in Steady State.


To avoid this warnings/issues with Wet Well during Steady State run:

1) Open the wetwell properties
2) Set "Fixed Level in Steady State" to True

When set to False, this option allows the calculated hydraulic grade of the wetwell to be adjusted during steady state, based on inflow and outflow.
