Fill Excavated from Trench

In cases where a trench goes through portions of the site which have proposed elevations higher than the existing elevations, some of the material excavated from the trench will be material added to the site to raise it. This material is listed as Fill (Excavated from Trench).

Since this material has already been compacted, the yield is used instead of the swell to calculate the loose volume. The compacted volume is shown in both the Compacted and Bank column for your convenience.

If there are active areas, the yield for Fill (Excavated from trench) uses the Summary Totals (Areas) fill yield. If there are no active areas, the yield associated with the Import material is used.

See Yield of Fill/Backfill for more information.
