Water Main Depth?


I have a 3/4" water line feeding my house.

I'm making some 'modifications' to the front of the house and with the removal of a big plant that was more or less hiding the incoming line.

It now comes up about 2.5' from the house to about a foot above the dirt...then goes into the house.

I'd like to reduce that exposure. I've started digging and I'm down about 1.5 and no sign of the vert run.

How far down do you think it will be?

Since there's no frost line in So. Cal, I will speculate , no farther than 4 feet.

Your city office should have a good idea.
