If this value [False] is , it will not return from the floodplain to the river channel. The default value is [False] . [False] In the case of, floodplain water never returns to the river. However, if there is a drainage station, it will return to the river through it. And if there are oceans, sewage, open cells, etc., then through them the water disappears.
