Plumbers: Code Against Plumb Crazy?

I know this sounds nuts, but for commercial use where an equipment mounting pad is too small to run piping, what stops one from running piping off the pad and into the grass, let’s say? …Maybe putting a small footer under the piping at one place (off the pad), at best? …Isn’t that just nuts?

What piping codes or best practices would advise against this? I need to point to something, as a benchmark for sanity sake…
