Good afternoon, All. 

I have not found a satisfactory answer to whether or not a 2 or 3" schedule 40 PVC conduit, installed ~3' below grade and into a 5' x 5' x 4' deep steel-reinforced free standing tower foundation will derate or harm the slab's overall integrity. I am preparing for my new tower (to be installed next spring) and would like to bring the cable feeds up inside the tower base thereby eliminating tripping hazards and other aesthetic concerns. 

Thanks in advance,
