I bury it under dirt in a shallow trench or dont bury it at all and put mulch over it..if it is to run under a walkway or pathway I run it thru ABS pipe and bury that.

I guess I'm in violation then and should get back out to that airport and sink my cable a bit deeper under the runway so it complies.
