  •  Because it's legal (15+ / 0-)

    I was on a planning commission for about 8 years in the 90's in suburban Philadelphia.  A subdivision plan had a gas pipe line running through it and one of the lots had the building envelope right over the pipe line.  I questioned it and the developer said is was legal (this was buried much deeper than 2 feet).  I replied that it may be legal but was it a good idea?  So I said fine but I want a note on the plans, on any sales literature that the pipe line ran on that lot and under the building envelope.  They reconfigured the plans so that the house would not sit on the pipe but I did get them to make notes of where the pipe line ran in the development.  In PA, there are orange semi circular pipes sticking out of the ground near roads to show the pipe line.
