How do I fix an edge-of-field bioreactors tool error? I believe “sheds_poly” corresponds to the polygon feature class of the drainage areas of each bioreactor site, which is an internal calculation of the tool. I tried saving the output Bioreactor shapefile to a new file geodatabase (.gdb) to see if perhaps there was not enough memory in the current file geodatabase, but the same error resulted. Only 1 field boundary was identified in this particular watershed as requiring tile drainage. Any thoughts?

The ‘sheds_poly’ must be at least 10 acres. If there are no polygons left after removing the small ones in the feature class, the repair_Geometry method will likely fail. We should put a test in theRead More…


My boundary and buffer polygons keep getting deleted. In the hydro-conditioning process I am running the D8 Processing Tool, running the PD Flow Network, running the Depression Depth Tool, adding cutlines feature class, creating cutlines and then running the Manual Cutter Tool. Afterwards, when I run the PD Flow Network or the Depression Depth Tool after making edits my boundary and buffer lines get deleted. Why is this happening?

I suspect that as part of your editing process you are inadvertently deleting features from the watershed boundary (bnd) and buffered boundary (buf) feature classes. If you set the feature class that you intend to editRead More…
