Can an outfall discharge to a downstream element?


Outfalls represent the ultimate termination points in a network. Outfall elements cannot be connected downstream to links but must either be the terminal node or associated with a pond. When using the explicit solver, only one conduit can be connected to an outfall. An outfall cannot be connected to other elements through a gutter.

Note that ponds are available to be used in SewerCAD and StormCAD versions 08.11.03.XX or later (ie. GVF Convex and GVF Rational solvers), however they will be treated similarly to a manhole node.
