English term or phrase: dumped to slight
The text is about pipelines and their underground use. There is a description about different shape factors when the pipeline is "digged" under different materials like sand and other materials.
Whereas I know what "moderate to high" means I really have no clue about the phrase "dumped to slight".

Help would be appreciated.
