I am using ArcGis 10.3 and am trying to trace a geometric network from a catch basin to a catch basin lead to a mainline ultimately to a storm pond.

  1. Flow direction is set correctly using digitized direction
  2. Traces when the flag is placed at the mainline manhole, the tracing works flawlessly
  3. Problem occurs when I trace from a catch basin, it will highlight to the lead by stop at the mainline, what could I be missing?

My mainline and CB leads are in the same feature class. CB points and manholes are in the same point feature class.

CB and MH Points:Simple Junction

Mainline and CB Leads fc: Complex Edge


  • Did you try rebuilding connectivity? – Kirk Kuykendall Jul 13 '18 at 20:03
  • Newly built network with no new edits, but I will give that a shot. – Pat the forest Jul 16 '18 at 17:39
  • Did not work the same problem persists – Pat the forest Jul 17 '18 at 14:13
  • What type of junction feature is located where the tracing stops ? Is it enabled? – Kirk Kuykendall Jul 17 '18 at 14:16
  • Connecting a line to a line (as shown above) Enabled: Yes (TRUE) – Pat the forest Jul 19 '18 at 17:15

Found the answer, I needed to add a junction to the line where it attaches to the mainline.
