Here is a question recently sent to me, How to calculate the volume of dirt removed based on 2: 1 slope, site area 2.00 acres, disturbed area 3.11 acres, earthwork estimate: cut - 12,403 cu yd, fill - 4,265 cu yd ???

Any of you engineers /dirt guys have any answers.

Me too. I do know(have read) that one acre ft of dirt is 1,666 cubic yards.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

That would be roughly 10 ac-ft of dirt moved. I can work on the exact calculation this evening.
