    How deep is the curb water shut off usually?

    Shoulder season is here and I have some valves to replace and prep for plumbers to come replace a water heater just starting to leak.

    The inside main does not shut off all the way. The ground has shifted around the curb shut off chase making it inaccessible. The water heater shut off is old and untrustworthy. I always got around it previously with compression valves (now have shark bites available), but I'm getting nervous not having access to that curb shut off.

    How deep are they usually? If faced with the task of digging it up and realigning the chase; would you just grab a shovel and carefully go? How much time would you think? The water company assumes no responsibility for the issue - it's on me to repair.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    Have the plumbers do it while they're there.

    Typically below the frost line by a foot. In Montana, six feet or more. In NV, 18"

    Thank you. I deeply appreciate your input.
