Storage Nodes

There have been several questions raised recently with regard to storage nodes and how these react to levels that exceed the defined storage array. The relationship between the storage parameters tab of the storage node and the ground level will determine what flood type is assigned to the storage node.

When the ground level is lower than the highest level in the storage parameters then the flood type will be set to stored.

When the ground level of the storage node is identical to the highest defined level in the storage parameters then the flood type will be set to lost.

When the ground level defined is higher than the highest level in the storage parameters then the flood type will be set to sealed.

In the screenshot below we can see that there are three storage nodes, the storage parameters for these are all identical and as can be seen in the bottom right of the screenshot. There are identical sluices between the outfall and the storage nodes, allowing the level from the outfall to be transferred to the storage nodes. Ground levels and results for the respective storage nodes can be seen for the nodes, along with other relevant results, demonstrating the flood type applications outlined above.
