is the lower in the trench.

Regulation 528 covers “PROXIMITY OF WIRING SYSTEMS TO OTHER SERVICES” and 528.2 refers to 100mm minimum clearance between power and telecommunication cables. I can’t find any other mention as to distance apart there is about a page and a half of regulations. So unless there are water regulations I think your OK.
