Chapter 70 ELECTRICITY.
Section 70-64 UNDERGROUND SERVICE CONNECTIONS.
A. In an area served by overhead lines, when a customer desires that the service
underground from the pole to the building, the owner shall install the requisite service
equipment. The Electrical Inspector shall be consulted as to the advisability of such a service
and shall specify the meter location and the pole from which the service shall be run. Either
conductor suitable for underground installations in conduit or other cable approved for the
purpose, installed in accordance with the utility's specifications, shall be used. Where the
conduit enters the ground at the pole or building, it should be enclosed in concrete to a depth of
eighteen (18) inches. Such service shall be not less than three (3) conductors No. 4 and as much
larger as the load requires. Such underground service shall be installed entirely at the customer's
expense and maintained by the customer.
B. If at any time the Electric Department needs to replace
a pole supporting an underground
service connection, installed as provided in Subsection A, the customer shall be notified of the
time, and he shall have his electricians on hand to take care of the service while pole replacement
is being made.
