So, my question is, is there anywhere that allows a below grade installation like this?
Mitchigo knows better than me, but in our area a Reduced pressure unit can be installed in a box below grade if it has a drain that empties to atmosphere. Love them angle valves but sharkbite ftg? King drain valve on main? in the valve box? They could use the backpack to go back to school.

What's wrong with a few rocks in your trench ....

Even better, check out what appears to be a fairly steep slope outside the wall with no erosion control of any kind.

I like how the concrete pan for the downspout is backwards, so the the dam is on the down side where it should spill out.

Oh wait - that's a pic from Kiril. I saw nothing in that post then

That's the way splash blocks are supposed to be installed.
