Seepage results less than the value entered for Constant Flow seepage method

When using the Constant Flow seepage method for a pond, the reported seepage is less than the valve that was entered.


There is a stability filter that limit the seepage at low pond depth. For instance at the beginning of a storm, the inflow may be less than the constant infiltration rate. The result of this stability filter is that there will sometimes be smaller seepage than expected.
