How does the Depth-Area option work for a Wetwell?

I have a wetwell with varying dimensions at different elevations. How do I correctly enter this information using the "Depth-Area" option for the "Section" input field in a wetwell?


The "depth-area" option for a wetwell expects a table of depths (measured from the bottom of the wetwell) versus equivalent cross sectional area.

So for example let's say you have an irregular wet well that is 5 m x 3.6 m between elevation -1.9 m  and 0.049 m and that is 3.95 m x 10 m between elevation 0.049 m and 8.25 m.

In this case you would enter an area of 18 m^2 between a depth of zero and 1.949 m and an area of 39.5 m^2 between a depth of 1.949 and 10.15.
