I just got a drop-line bill from CMR. The cable was not buried properly and was cut doing normal yard work - edging specifically. The National Electrical Code (NEC) states that with such cables the depth of burial "shall be sufficient to protect the cable from damage by the expected surface usage." I think edging and mowing is an "expected useage" of my front yard. Needless to say, CMR saw it differently and threatened to take me to collections if I didn't pay. Can someone there please help get this resolved?
