new underground power and new water line


Thanks in advance for allowing me to be here. I am located in Vermont. Last August Hurricane Irene came through and destroyed a lot of the state. My Mom owns a small mobile home park, also destroyed along with her house. We have her back living in her home again, she's 87 and is as tough as they come. We are going to be putting in a new water line as well as underground power. The power line will be a minimum of 3' in depth, vermont code. The water line will be down lower than that, 5' minimum. Is anyone aware of a code requiring the water line to be a certain distance away from the power????

underground utilities usually falls under the department of public works so give them a call.
