    I assume you mean rigid metal conduit and not pvc.

    In open areas: 6" cover
    One and two family driveways & parking areas: 18" cover
    Under streets, highways, roads, alleys, driveways, and parking lots: 24" cover
    Airport runways: 18" cover
    Answers based on the 2008 & 2011 NEC. If you're on the '14 already I feel sorry for you.
