Taking the plunge

Well after much thought, I've decided to take the plunge and build a roll off roof observatory. I've got Scott Horstman's plans, spoken with him, and ordered his wheels. I started digging the hole for the peir yesterday. My question is will a 3' x 3' x 2' deep hole be sufficient or should I go deeper? I have some ground water seeping in the hole at 2' because the observatory is in a low spot in my yard.

Deeper is better than wider. Wider and deeper is best of all.
