Step 1:  Identify the Problem "ERROR 141: Outfall J-561 has more than 1 inlet link or an outlet link." Means you have an outfall node in the middle of your model.
Step 2:  Make a new outfall.

Step 4:  Convert the older outfall  to a Junction using the Pick Axe and the Convert Type tool
Step 5:  Make a new Link connecting the old and the new Outfall
Step 6:  Convert the new Link to an  Outlet Type using the Convert Type Tool.
Step 7:  Set up the parameters for the new Outlet Link
Step 8:  For those outfalls that DO have more than one link you need to make a new Outfall.
You should be able to run the model now
