Well the village supplied the labor to hook up the water service on both ends. I bought the 1 inch copper pipe from them at their cost so that was a big help. The guy I hired to dig up the old service and bury the new work afterword charged 275. So all in all, probably closer to 350. And yeah it is 4 ft deep.
Interestingly, someone had dug this up before and there was a spliced on piece of galvanized in the middle of the original 3/4" copper.
