Don’t Forget to Call J.U.L.I.E. Before You Dig
The Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators (JULIE) is the free Illinois one-call system for locating underground facilities. Call JULIE at 811 at least 48 hours in advance on normal business days before you or a contractor begin digging. It’s the law in Illinois. This gives utilities time to identify and mark their buried facilities using paints and/or flags. When you call, you will be given a dig number, which you may need if additional calls to JULIE are necessary (e.g. to have utility marks refreshed).
- Your name, address and phone number
- Your company’s name and address (if applicable)
- Location of the dig site
- Extent of work involved (reason for dig)
- Date work will begin
- Permit number (if applicable)
