Was wondering if any of you take any safety precautions while digging in yards that may have power or gas lines running underneath them?  Or even parks or really anywhere. Are there gas and power lines all over the place hidden just beneath the soil? I have no idea. I'm new to the hobby and just wanna make sure I don't make the 5   o'clock news.     Undecided

Perhaps calling the gas or power company prior to a dig?

Obviously I know it's a good idea but I was just wondering if you thunters out there worry about it at all.

Thanks!

Farmdigger, there are minimum requirements for depth on all gas, water and electrical lines worldwide. They do vary from one locality to another so you have to check with your city regulations. Easily done with a phone call.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

İn little towns, gas pipes and electrical line are (generally) 80 cm under the earth surface of the sidewalk or pavement.
