I don't know about our local electric utility, but the telephone company won't dig in our shoddy old trailer park when someone wants to add or modify service that might require a trench. Telco service reps tell the customer that a trench would be required after a site survey/walkdown and then have the customer provide the trench to their specs because they've stated that it's too likely that someone is going to get fried by digging in the area and it's not going to be their guys/gals.
