How to protect the water well pipe?


Need another advice. I have to bring the water line and wire from the water well to the house site at 4' in the ground and is quite a long way. To protect them, I was thinking to run into a conduit/pipe or o-pipe. Do you have another idea? May I put it together in the conduit? The water line is 1.25" so the plan is to use 3" conduit/o-pipe. Do, you see any potential problem?
Thank you for any suggestion.

If protection is goal then lay some 2x planks over top of it. Put some sand in the trench over the pipe, add the lumber, add some more fill, add some caution/warning tape and then fill the rest of the trench.

Freeze goes how deep?
Here the water line is at least 10 feet down and covered by blue board then the wire line is laid down.

Metal pipe?
