They are intended as specifications to be followed by the mill in sourcing yarn used to produce the fabric. However, because dyeing, finishing, and knitting can alter the characteristic of the yarn as it appears in the finished fabric, the specification therefore includes yarns appearing in the finished fabric as finer or coarser than the designated yarn sizes provided that the variation occurs after processing of the greige yarn and production of the fabric. In addition, while the fabric is intended to be piece-dyed, the specifications include both piece- and yarn-dyed to accommodate any Customs’ findings that the finished fabric appears to be yarn-dyed as a result of dye absorption.

The process has engaged the public through formal public review and workshops, and included an external peer review by the National Academies of Science as required by the Water Resources Development Act of 2007. Modernized Principles and Guidelines will improve Federal government decision making related to investment in water resource projects and, thus, improve how our country plans for infrastructure projects.
