Hi, I'm new on WEAP. I want to ask about inputing flow requirements to demand sites, as far as I know, demand sites have annual activity level, we have to input the unit as areas, flow, etc. But when I use flow unit (CMS), in annual water use rate the unit would become m3/CMS. How do I input only CMS unit in demand sites? Because I only have the flow requirements data. Thank you very much

Hi Bagus,
I think you'll need to do the conversion. You can either do this outside of WEAP before your bring your data in, or by setting up a conversion factor as a Key Assumption and then using that key assumption in a formula for your water use data.
Assuming your data is CMS taken as an average through the year, the conversion would be
x60 s/min x60 min/hour x24 hour/day x 365.25 days/year. That will get you from CMS to cubic meters of annual usage.
