<p align="left">This box is located on a busy street in front of a commercial strip. It is stubbed up at the grassy area between the parking lot and the concrete sidewalk. We are working to identify the property owner/responsible parties, so that they can be given Notice, to make replacement and repairs of this box. The use of the nonmetallic sheathed cable in the conduit, is not the least of violations which will be listed on the Notice.
<p align="left">Thanks

What Article states you can not put NM cable in PVC. Article 336-6 says you must protect NM cable from damage and one of the means is schedule 80 PVC. Article 347 on PVC has no mention of not using it to protect NM cable. I know of Article 400-8(6) that says you cannot run cord in a raceway (except as otherwise permitted in the code, but it provides no hint of where that is.)

Although they might be discolored from weathering (a bad situation in itself), it appears that there are 1 black, 2 white, and a green conductor in the homerun. So, why did they culprit feel it was necessary to put white phase tape on that green wire?

Good point Electure!

Something doesn't look right with those colors of wires. [Linked Image]
