To clarify the units used for DWF, Max_Daily, Mean, and Max_Rate in the Effluents table are as follows:
- DWF, Max_Daily and Mean are all in cubic meters per day
- Max_Rate is in litres per second
Flow figures should be entered in 2 places on WIMS – within the effluents screen and also as a determinand.
Both tables are included within the dataset but there are some instances where the flow figures have been entered in one and not the other so generally the effluents table is the more reliable source. However, this does not report the units as these show as a field label within WIMS itself. Where they have been entered as determinands the units are included and thus show within the table.
