Outlets represent Flow controls that allow flows to leave a Stormwater Control, a Manhole or a Junction at a restricted rate. Click on the individual Outlet links to see specific input details.

A list of the different types of Outlets is shown on the right - select one of these Outlet Types to view the details.


Outlets are created as part of a Junction, Manhole or Stormwater Control to stipulate how much of the water will leave the structure. They can be accessed via the Outlets tab.

Each structure can have one or more outlets with each outlet linked to a single connection.
