-=====Water transfer=====+=====Water ​abstraction and transfer=====
 Water transfer can be simulated by HYPE in different ways. One way is to represent abstraction by defining [[start:​hype_model_description:​hype_human_water#​negative_point_source | negative point source]] discharge. Another method is to use the [[start:​hype_model_description:​hype_routing#​bifurcations | bifurcation functionality]] that defines a branch through which the water is transferred to a downstream receiving subbasin. A third way is to define water transfer through water management (abstracting from subbasins with outlet lakes and transferring to any other subbasin). The negative point source method has the disadvantage that the water transfer is constant and with fixed concentrations specified by the user (although you can let it be constant at different values for different periods), but the abstraction can be located at different points throughout the catchment. The bifurcation method has the limitation that the receiving subbasin must be downstream. The management method can only take water from an outlet lake, and the water transfer will be delayed one time step. In all methods, the amount of water available on any given day will limit the amount that can be withdrawn or transferred. Water transfer can be simulated by HYPE in different ways.
