I strongly suggest the term "outfall" be avoided in the HY Features model.
In normal parlance, outfalls are associated with sewage as the place where
a sewer empties into a water body, ocean, or stream. Also, "outfall" does
connote drainage of a basin.

I suggest instead a more neutral term that does not connote sewage, and yet
still connotes draining of an arbitrary basin.

I suggest instead: "POUR POINT".

Thank you and best regards,
