### Earthwork Calculations

**Cross-section** (in section) Directions - calculate cut and fill by taking "slices" along a base line

#### Contour Plane** Directions **- calculate cut and fill by finding the areas of the cut and fill and multiply by the height of a contour

Spread Sheet Calculations for Contour Plane Earthwork Calculations

#### Grid Method Earthwork Calculation -Use a grid to determine points of changes in cut and fill to interpolate total cut and fill for your disturbed area
