So today we were running a Harley rake over yard. Called and had the utilities marked and hand dug a few holes to get an idea of depth on the phone line. Didn't see anything at six inches so we moved forward with the Harley rake. Sure enough the phone cable was snagged in an area at a depth of only about an inch. So my question is what is the best practice for dealing with shallow utilities? Do you just tell the home owner that there's a good chance phone or cable will be cut if we proced with a certain service. I know most folks aren't going to be happy about loss of service few possibly a few days? Do you call the utility company and tell them it will most likely be cut and run a temporary above ground line that is visible? Will they even do that? Just seems like I try to cover my bases, but still get burned with the 1-2" phone and cable lines.
