The rain gage objects can use time series, external text files or NOAA rainfall data files. This method uses the cumulative infiltration in excess of the minimum rate as its state variable instead of time along the Horton curve , providing a more accurate infiltration estimate when low rainfall intensities occur. A warning message was added for when a Rain Gage's recording interval is less than the smallest time interval appearing in its associated rainfall time series. Please note our office hours are Monday to Friday from 8 a. An reporting error for the overflow rate into the ponded volume for a node that floods under dynamic wave flow routing was corrected see dynwave.

As a result, it is now permissible to use hydrographs whose time to peak is shorter than the rain gage recording interval. The subsets of possible nodes are: Problems with dynamic flow routing through long force mains connected to Type 3 and Type 4 pumps have been corrected see dynwave.
The possibility that the initial setting of an orifice was not being made correctly was eliminated see link. Monthly adjustments for hydraulic conductivity are now also applied to the internal Green-Ampt "Lu" parameter which varies with the square root of conductivity.
The way that concentrations in runoff are combined with those from runon and direct rainfall was modified so as to produce more consistent results, especially when a BMP removal value is appled.
When the Ponding option is turned on, nodes that can pond are no longer always treated like storage smwm that never surcharge.
A storage layer water depth below which an open drain automatically closes. This set of equations can be solved numerically at each runoff time step to determine how an inflow hydrograph to the LID unit is converted into some combination of runoff hydrograph, sub-surface storage, sub-surface drainage, and infiltration into the surrounding native soil.
This version is the official release of the older SWMM4 program, but it's somewhat out of date.
Format errors in external time series files are now listed as Error invalid data instead of Error time series out of sequence. The calculation of overall flow routing mass balance was modified to account for cases where some flow streams, like ssmm external inflow, are negative. The time from the last rainfall used to determine when a Rain Barrel should begin to empty wasn't being computed e;a. In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the safety of human life or where necessary to protect certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information.
These compartments and the SWMM objects they contain include:.
A mistake in the Hazen-WIlliams head loss formula for force main conduits was corrected see forcmain. The following processes can be modeled for any number of user-defined water quality constituents: When the moisture content of the upper groundwater zone reaches saturation, the depth of the lower saturated zone is now set equal to the full aquifer depth minus a small tolerance.
A bug in identifying the percent of time that a conduit has either end full was fixed. LID drains can now send their outflow to a different node or subcatchment than the parent subcatchment in which they were placed. They provide storage, infiltration and evaporation of both direct rainfall and runoff captured from surrounding areas.
When the setting of an orifice or weir was changed to 0 to completely block flow the flow depth in the element wasn't being set to 0. Sometimes they act as a replacement for the natural absorption of a forest or other natural process that was lost when an area is developed.

A weir with an open rectangular shape and non-zero slope parameter will no longer generate an input error message - the slope value is now ignored. The reporting of total system maximum runoff rate in the Status Report's Subcatchment Runoff Summary table has been corrected.
Engine Updates A climate file in the user-prepared format will no longer be confused with one using the Canadian format see climate. Inflows to this compartment can come from surface runoff, groundwater interflow, sanitary dry weather flow, or from user-defined hydrographs.
Failure to initialize swm, evaporation loss to 0 was causing problems with the reported groundwater mass balance for subcatchments that had no pervious area.
Rain Barrels or Cisterns are containers that collect roof runoff during storm events and can either release dwmm re-use the rainwater during dry periods. The procedure for finding a cross-section area given a section factor value was corrected for the case where the section factor table does swmmm have its highest value as the last entry in the table.
EPA's Stormwater Management Model SWMM is used for single event or long-term simulations of water runoff quantity and quality in primarily urban areas—although there are also many applications that can be used for drainage systems in non-urban areas. It can usually maintain numerical stability with moderately large time steps, on the order of 1 to 5 minutes.
The Pump Summary Report was expanded to include number of start- ups, minimum flow, and time off both the low and high ends of the pump curve.
These include color-coded drainage area and conveyance system maps, time series graphs and tables, profile plots, and statistical frequency analyses. In addition to modeling the generation and transport smwm runoff flows, SWMM can also estimate the production of pollutant loads associated with this runoff.
