I have some confusions in using stage time series. Please help.
There is an option of using time series data for outfall stage. Should I include elevation of water or depth of water in this case.
invert EI =-5 ft
Outlet offset= 0
depth of conduit = 12 ft
depth of water ( stage) =7 ft
Now, should I input stage at outlet = 7ft
or I should input with reference to Invert EI= 7-5= 2ft
I have the same confusion for initial depth of water in junctions. Is it just depth (7ft) or the elevation (2ft)
Thanking you in anticipation.
