Is there a minimum distance between black-pipe gas line and PVC electrical conduit when buried?
Both the gas line (CA Plumbing Code 1210.1.1, CA CoR Title 8, §536.a.2) and the PVC electrical conduit (CA Electrical Code, §300.5) need to be at least 18" deep, so I'd like to put them in the same 5" wide trench.
What is the minimum distance between an electrical outlet and ...
a) a gas pipe?
There is no expectation of gas release, but the outlet is considered an ignition source.
b) a gas value?
I'm assuming this case is different than (a) because there is potential for gas to be released.
The only info I've found is specific to gas meters, and that says 3 feet from meter to electrical box front.
