The volume of a levee 2009-09-29
From Wes:
I need a levee with a 2:1 slope on both sides (front and back), the length of the levee is 290 feet, the height of the levee is 15 feet, and the width of the levee, at the top, is 10 feet. How do I figure out how many CUBIC YARDS of dirt I need to make the levee? And what formula do I use in future to figure this out easily?
