I experienced the same problem on a city sidewalk project. While the original bury depth was appropriate, some grading after the electical line installation left it well short of the required depth. Contractor hit the line with a skid loader while cutting grade for the sidewalk. No one hurt, but a local radio stations tower repeater was down for about 5 hours. Always pays to hand dig and actually ""get eyes on the cable conduit or pipe". gobble

I think Ive told this before but here goes again.

Was hired to install a new diesel tank for the Sheriffs Dept to run their large generator. Had to remove old tank and install new with fuel lines etc. so, as usual I call the locator people and they spent about four hours scouring the are, determining all electric and phone (?) lines about 20 feet from the dig. Sooooo, I proceed to dig alongside the old tank and on the third bucketful I came up with what seemed to be thousands of wires all separated somewhere down in the hole. Guess what?? Someone had installed the phone and alarm wires right on top of the old tank(against all rules). Needless to say, there was all kind of consternation and the phone co. insisted I pay the dames costs . That was until I showed then the CBYD contract and also the regulations stating you cannot run any kind of wires over a fuel tank. What fun that was
