Buried Service Entry & water

I'm changing to a buried service entry which will be 4/0 aln in pvc, but it will need to accommodate the plastic water line as well. I'll put the electric at 18" deep, but I need to know how close I can put my water line to the pvc conduit. I live in Jefferson County, Missouri.

I'll be out for a couple of hours, but I'll stay logged in so I can find my post. It sucks being a newbie!

I would contact your inspector and ask what he expects to see.


With Electricity there is the right way to do it and the dead way. Just because it works does not make it safe.
