A Negative Vote on a prior ballot requested the inclusion of information relating to laying lines. Unfortunately, due to administrative procedures, the D2178 standard has been withdrawn by ASTM because all negative votes on the revision of this outdated standard had been found persuasive. D2178 must therefore be reinstated as soon as possible in order to prevent it from disappearing from the book of standards. The current ballot item serves this purpose. Only the addition of a new section 7.4 is open for ballot. All other revisions to D2178 will be considered in the next round of ballots or as new business for the task group.
