Can utilities be found anywhere at any depth? (with Examples)

Short Answer = YES.

Yes, cables, pipes and other utilities can be found at any depth. There are standards for depth but in some situations pipes need alternate routes because of obstructions. Below are some examples I found in one day on the job.

Telstra cables, not burried.

Some utilities (usually private residential) are not on dial before you dig maps. To have the best chance of avoiding dangerous utilities, contact your local certified utility locator.
