Ok, so there is a bauxite plant with its waste lakes which spill over when rain falls. People are afraid the waste will run into their homes etc when rainfall occurs. I want to model where the waste will go when it overflows. What I have is a DEM of the area, rivers, soil, landuse and spatial and 3D analyst toolbar plus arcinfo. How would I go about determining which direction the waste from the mud lakes will travel in?
