my friend is a manager at a locating company so i asked him about the gasline. He said it should be 2 feet deep but there's never any garuntees. The line the locator laid out should be within a few inches of the actual line. The one meter is just for liability reasons.

so if my gas line is 2' deep, with the pressure treated wood i could go shallow over the gasline?

would digging the trench in an area that my van wouldn't drive on, nore a load bearing deck be placed, i could dig in theory, 18" deep for the whole length?

Are you sure PT is allowed to protect the wire in the US ?
I have only seen concrete listed in the burial depth tables in the US
But that's for electric -not gas line

He's in calgary

with the planking on top of the wire you actually would only have to go to a depth of 12" to the top of the cable. 18" without the planking.

wait a sec...i may have the wrong post here....where are you located exactly? I could have sworn you said you were from canada.
