    I am running 120v electric and black pipe gas line around the side of a house. I plan on putting the gas line 2' deep along the foundation. The electric will be in conduit with no interruptions in the line along the length (when near the gas line). Does anybody see a problem with putting the two in the same trench?

    From here in Wisconsin it doesn't bother me one bit. Seriously; I would call your local utility company and ask them. I just did a job last fall where the utilities had trenched one deep trench and all utilities were laid in together (phone, gas, electric, cable). Made it easy once we found them, but scared the shyte out of the guy who first located it.
