SUBJECT: ENG – National Engineering Handbook (NEH), Part 645, Engineering Technical Materials
Purpose. To distribute revised IL-ENG standard drawings.
Effective Date. Upon receipt.
Explanation of Changes. This notice distributes 12 revised standard engineering drawings. Two of these revised drawings have changed drawing numbers so that closely related drawings are close in numerical drawing number sequence.
This notice continues with the change in the way Illinois NRCS standard drawings with multiple pages will be presented. Drawings with multiple pages in this release are now contained in a single file to streamline user access. Three formats are now supported: .dwg, .pdf, and .dxf.
The Illinois NRCS engineering website will be revised to reflect the updated drawings: http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/detail/il/technical/engineering/?cid=nrcs141p2_030571.
