Link and Node Depth Relationship in SWMM 5

Note: The depth in a manhole or node in SWMM 5 can be higher than the depth in the connecting links if the link is surcharged. Typically the upstream link depth is equal to the upstream node depth (if there is not link offsets) and the downstream link depth is equal to the downstream node depth (if there is no offsets) until the link is surcharged and then the node surcharge depth algorithm is used in SWMM 5 and point iteration equation is used to calculate the surcharge depth in the node.
