Free access must be provided to fire hydrants and water valves at all times during the progress of any work performed under the provisions of this subchapter. All materials excavated shall be laid compactly alongside of the trench and kept trimmed up so as to cause as little inconvenience as possible to the public traffic. If the street is not wide enough to hold the excavated materials, without using a part of the adjacent sidewalk, the person by whom the excavation is being done shall erect a tight board fence upon and along such sidewalk and keep a passageway at least four feet in width opening upon and along such sidewalk. All gutters shall be maintained free and unobstructed for the full width of the adjacent curb, and for at least one foot in width from the base of such curb to the gutter line. Whenever a gutter crosses an intersecting street, an adequate waterway shall be provided and at all times maintained and kept open.
