Can H. O. Install new UG Main service?

For underground here, a 2 1/2 pipe, 3 feet into the ground with a sweep on it, then the poco feeds with their wire.

Can H. O. Install new UG Main service?

I had to have the wire for my service changed from paralleling 2 4/0s and 2 2/0 neutrals (I think) for a 400 amp service. Poco wanted a 4 inch conduit with 350 kcmil hots and a 4/0 neutral. Lines were disconnected because digging was going on. It actually would have been cheaper to pull new wire.
