When a cable is cut during minor operations(small plants, aeration, sod cutting, etc) who is at fault? If the cable was not buried at a proper depth, how can you be held liable for damaging something that is not where it should be? It may be different in other places; but here, the TV and sometimes phone are laid on the ground before sod and that's where they stay I've cut several TV cables with a stick edger and the next week I see where a new cable is run from the box to the house. You can stick your finger in the "trench" and feel the cable. Kinda makes me want to run it over again I'm pushing an aeration in a new neighborhood (<2 year) and am sure the cable TV (maybe phone) are just under the surface. As much as I'd like to see the cable co. suffer for thier laziness and stupidity; I don't want to pizz off a bunch of potential long term customers and be liable for 50 new cable installs I know about call before you dig.... but that's not the point..... It's 4" deep MAX..... NOTHING should be buried that shallow. Now I'm wondering if the irrigation contractor that did the whole 'hood had enough sense to put the lines more than 4"
