How to Delete Invisible InfoSWMM Subcatchments

Note:  You could delete the subcatchments if you saw them on the screen.  What I did here was to make a list of the subcatchments I wanted to delete; made a simple SWMM 5 import file simply containing the subcatchment names and the POLYGON field

I found a workaround that uses a part of the SWMM 5 input file but does not require you to export all of the SWMM 5 data to EPA SWMM 5.  If you make a POLYGON file in this example format for all of the subcatchments you want to delete then you can import JUST the polygon data using the EPASWMM 5 import, selecting Clear All and Import.  The subcatchments can then be located using the Locate command and you can easily delete the data using the delete selection icon. 

I  found it is best to bring in the polygon surrounding the subcatchment in the form of a triangle as this example shows.
