The idea of a deeper pit comes from curbside meters up north. They escape freezing on account of the 4+ foot pit, and that's with only a manhole cover on the pit. The temperature of the soil moderates as you get deeper. Some of the pit covers came with an inner cover, which left an airspace of about half a foot, and provided extra protection from the cold.
