ref 162-370040
I am having issues trying to use pump outlet in the reservoir and keep getting this error. has anyone had this issue before and any suggestions to model pumps in HEC HMS

would be greatly appreciated! Thank
ajugar

RE: hec hms reservoirs pumps

I'm not an expert with HEC HMS, but it sounds like you need to extend the pump rating curve to lower head values. Although you may not intend to operate the pump at very low heads, the software needs a complete rating curve in order to do the routing calculation.
