A plan and profile sheet (fig. 15-6) and a typical
cross section (fig. 15-7) are other information found
on a site plan.
Symbols used in drawings are as follows:
. A contour line shows us an imaginary line,
representing a constant elevation on the earths surface.
Blueprints, or plans, use contour lines to show the final
. Existing contour lines identify the existing ele-
vations (fig. 15-8). Existing and proposed elevations are
used to figure cut-and-fill operations.
. Proposed contour lines are those we work to-
ward, You use them to visualize the finished product
. Utility symbols identify utility lines. The sym-
bols for pipe are shown in figure 15-9. Once all the
