MODRAT Detention Basin

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm working the the MODRAT hydrology model. I was wondering if the Reservoir (or detention basin) routing feature is still included and, if so, if you had any more guidance on the feature. I see it is referenced in the "Schematic" MODRAT tutorial, but I just don't see where I can turn on the Reservoir Routing display option in the MODRAT parameters window. Is there a screenshot of this option anywhere? Or has it been removed? Thank you!

The option to define a reservoir at an outlet point in a MODRAT model is still there. There is an option at the top of the MODRAT Parameters dialog to turn on the display of the Reservoir Routing options for an outlet. Once you have turned this option on, you can scroll to the right to see the options to define reservoir routing and the storage discharge curves for the reservoir/detention basin.

The following picture describes these options:


Let me know if I can help with anything else.
