Using SWMM5 treatment equations at a node or link in ICM Networks
Users would like to use SWMM5 Buildup Washoff in ICM Networks AND the SWMM5 treatment equations at a node or link in the ICM St Venant solution.
ICM SWMM networks have both options but for the purposes of using the powerful routing solution in ICM - It would be good to have at least a treatment feature at node/link even as a simple percentage pollutant removal LID/SuDS do have this simple BMP water quality removal.

yes, this is a very important feature to do a water quality simulation, such as H2S. If there is no treatment, how would user can simulate the downstream improvement impact of certain investment and quantify its benefit? In addition, other variable such as water age shall also be added to complement other existing features.
This is probably one of most important thing for Innovyze. without an integrated treatment option for ICM, it is equivalent to knowing a problem and not being able to provide an quantitative answer, which totally defeats the purpose of having a model.
comment by RED - SWMM5 uses a CSTR pollutant solution for nodes and links - this is not easily transferable to the ICM 1D solution.
