A: Hi, kjtaa. 3".
A: Hi, Mike123 - Generally you would need about a foot of soil over the pipe to achieve good enough support for anything going over them. This depth will usually depend on the area you live in so it’s always good to get educated on the matter. You should also know that code dictates that sewer lines are generally buried deeper than landscape drainage pipes. Another thing to keep in mind is whether the soil has been properly treated after excavation (large rocks, debris, etc.). Once the pipes are placed into the trench, the soil that fills it has to be compacted properly. Under the circumstances of compacted soil, vehicles can cross the pipe with no issue. The soil itself will keep your pipes from any damage. It's a good idea, however, to err to the deeper side (providing more protection) when vehicles will be driven over the installation.
