Adding Features to Surface Topo Map

My customer did a topo survey of his field with his FMX and loaded it into Farm Works Surface for tile drainage design.

He then wanted to add some features such as buried power lines and irrigation pipe. He went back into the field and used the feature functions of the FMX to add some lines and point features to the same field name and event in the FMX. He then reloaded the field back into Surface hoping to see the features on the field. What happened is that the topographic map turned almost all red with a few other colors on the feature lines he added.

Do features carry an elevation with them that would change the topo map?

What is the proper way to record features in the FMX so they will show properly as lines or points in Surface to aid in the tile system design?
