Doing a job adding some circcuits for parking lot lights. One of the underground circuits has pvc run to one of those green rectangular underground boxes (with no bottom) and wires spliced in it, in and out. This can't be legal.

Aldav, this is a common installation and is allowed per 314.30(C)

Just a thought, does the cover indicate "Electric" ???
The green 'irrigation' don't exactly fly, as they are intended for 'low voltage' circuits.
