Is there any place where I can find information about how I can handle diversions on WEAP. I am trying to a pipe linw network and I need to have nodes to work only for transfering water.
Can someone help me?

Diversion nodes withdraw water from a river (or another diversion), and this diverted flow becomes the headflow for a diversion. A diversion is modeled in WEAP as a separate river, complete with river nodes, demands and return flows. WEAP will divert only as much water as needed to satisfy the demand sites connected to the diversion, and its instream flow requirements.
Typically, a diversion is an artificial conduit, such as a canal or pipeline. WEAP will divert only as much water into the diversion as it needed to satisfy demands for water on the diversion--instream flow requirements, reservoir filling or withdrawals for demand sites. The Maximum Diversion data variable represents the maximum amount that can be diverted, due to physical capacity, contractual or other constraints. However, this maximum constraint only applies to the amount diverted into a diversion; if the diversion has other inflows downstream, it can exceed this maximum.
