The water company is out by the main road now, installing a meter for the cottage. We already have a trench for the portion I will be responsible for – about 300 feet or so. It will be pvc pipe and will be protected with another pipe where the new driveway will cross it. I sure don’t want to worry about leaks. We hope the electric company will also bury the line back to the cottage. I plan to mark the trenches somehow, as I don’t know if they mark the private portion of utilities with the 811 call. It would be nice to have an idea where to dig or not to dig. After all, this is our retirement community and we expect our memories of this will fade.
