JULIE is a not-for-profit corporation that provides contractors, excavators, homeowners, and others who may be disturbing the earth, with a single toll-free number to call for the locating and marking of underground utilities. Anytime you plan to dig, whether it’s a small or a large construction or homeowner project (such as putting up a fence or clothes line, planting a garden or shrubbery, building a home addition, deck or foundation, etc.) you must call 48 hours (NOT COUNTING WEEKENDS AND/OR HOLIDAYS) prior to digging. JULIE will notify the owners/operators of underground facilities who are JULIE members of this planned digging activity.

CALL BEFORE YOU DIG! 8-1-1 is a national clearinghouse for all undergound locating services, including JULIE in Illinois.
