    Had to fix a 4" main running under a road in a sleeve. Ended up running 100' of 4" under the road.

    The last pic is a sleeve 5-6' under the road running new irrigation. What a pita.

    What a rat's nest of field wire. Was that all wire-tied before you backfilled?

    When I was digging water and sewer lines , anything over 3 ft deep we were required to use a trench box.
