    Re: existing site plan.

    Some of your contours do not look correct.

    I think the spot elevation on the far left should be 21 and not 2.1 don't you?
    The loop in the 120 ft. contour isn't right and the way the 130 ft. contour is formed does not appear to be correct either.

    That would be Plate 3 and 4 that you are referring to right?

    I'm not sure I follow you.

    To my knowledge Penn-Foster has not removed any material in the PDF files containing the instructions for each project (civil, structural, etc.). They do however make references to additional materials, as I have noted in the instructions for the structural project, which I always assumed each student received as part of the course. If I were a P-F student and was told to see another publication that I did not have I would contact one of the instructors and request it. After all, you did pay good money for this course did you not?

    In regards to the civil project you speak of what information are you missing specifically?

    The date on the PDF file I have is from Sept. 2011. Plate 3 is supposed to be a drawing of the Driveway Profile and Section A Profile. Plate 4 is supposed to be a drawing of the Section B Profile. If I am not mistaken the cut lines for the sections were supposed to be shown on Plate 2. Is this the information you have?

    I would have to take another look at the actual instructions. I did not take the course. I was given the drawings by another member of this forum who did take the course. He was assisting other students like yourself but could no longer do so. He asked me if I could lend a hand when necessary but made me promise not to attach his completed DWG files to any of my posts. He was OK with screenshots though. Most of the ones you see in many of the threads regarding the civil project are taken directly from his drawings. He got an "A" for the course by the way.
