Are there specific regulations on the depth at which cables should be buried? I accidentally cut my TV cable because it had been buried less than 2 inches deep.

The industry standard for communication cable or conduit is as follows. (unless specifically engineered and approved to be otherwise.)

Drops should be 6-10 deep
Coax feeder cable 24 deep- 36 under paving
Trunk Fiber 36 deep
18 of clear separation for utility crossings

Thank You,

Shane Chandler
