Safe Digging Day
Post Date:08/07/2019 1:27 PM
August 11th is Safe Digging Day! Before beginning ANY outdoor projects that include excavation JULIE must be notified at 8-1-1 or by electronic request prior to digging. A JULIE employee will issue a dig number and notify all utility companies including ComEd, NICORGas, Comcast Cable, and Carol Stream to mark the location of their service lines on the property where the work will take place. Utility service locates will be marked in either color coded spray paint or ground flags. According to state law, the homeowner, contractor or subcontractor doing the actual digging is required to call JULIE no later than 2 working days BEFORE excavation. Failure to call JULIE before excavating is a violation of the Illinois Underground Utilities Damage Prevention Act. JULIE Call Centers are staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.Return to full list >>
