Here you choose the units for data entry. The units can be set for the following components: Rivers, Reservoirs, Groundwater, Other Supplies, Land Use, Wastewater Treatment, and Monetary. The exception is the Default Water Use Rate set on the Demand tab. The Default Water Use Rate you set will be the default data entry unit, but you will be able to change the units individually for each branch. Also, the system Real Discount Rate is entered on the Monetary tab.  Note that WEAP's costing calculations are all performed in real currency units (net of inflation), although results can be displayed in both real (constant) and discounted currency units.
