I have a question on how to determine head within a pipe system. I am not an expert pressure pipe system analyst. We have a sedimentation pond with an 6" HDPE pipe line draining water from it. The outlet of our pipe is at 505 at the pond and the pipe will be layed on the ground, downhill to an elevation of 480. At 480 it needs to go up and over a 5' berm. What is the best way to determine if the head pressure in the pipe will push the water up and over the berm?
