    In ground or above ground? Above, should not matter. In ground, someone needs to take a long look at the winter ground temps as you could have heave issues if too close to the loops.

    Yup, non violent way to end the occupation? Turn off the power and water to the "zone" and see how long it lasts without power for the cell phones and spoiling food. 24 to 48 hours should do it.
