Overflow in InfoSewer

InfoSewer unlike InfoSWMM, InfoWorks ICM and InfoWorks CS does not lose water out the top of chamber and loading manholes during an Extended Period Simulation (EPS) when the HGL reaches the Rim Elevation.  InfoSewer does lose water when a Wet Well becomes Full.   

One of the output parameters is the parameter Overflow.  The Overflow is

Overflow = Flow in Link - Q full for the Link

If Overflow is negative then the Pipe is not full based on the value of q/Qfull

If Overflow is positive then the Pipe is Full - the units of Overflow are the units of Flow in InfoSewer.

What is Overflow in InfoSewer?
