trenching for a future water/electrical

I will be doing some trenching this weekend. In california, can water and electrical be laid in the same trench? Different depths? I plan to trench, lay the pipe but let the professionals do the hook ups. This is in a field, definately nothing to hit or dig up.

I can't speak to CA rules, but in any event I would run the electrical circuit in some conduit and not just use ground rated conductors.


If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. If you wouldn't put your name on it, it ain't done right!
