** NPR 7150.2 Revision C was approved August 2nd, 2019.  The SEPG is working on an update to LPR 7150.2 that conforms with NPR 7150.2C.  Until LPR 7150.2 is updated, the content on this site will continue to reflect a mix of NPR 7150.2C and LPR 7150.2B.  However, changes in NPR 7150.2C take precedence over LPR 7150.2B, and new projects are expected to comply with NPR 7150.2C. **
