Call Before You Dig! Call 811

As part of its ongoing commitment to make safe digging as convenient as possible, JULIE, Inc. is announcing that it is now easier for homeowners and contractors to reach the one-call center simply by dialing 811.  The 811 number is another option to reaching JULIE, it does not replace the existing toll free number at 800-892-0123.

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 facilities.

JULIE is not a utility.  JULIE owns no facilities and does not locate underground facilities.  JULIE is a message handling service which receives location requests from persons excavating.  JULIE then sends these requests to JULIE member companies who have facilities in the area of excavation.  Each utility is responsible to mark its own facilities.  The service provided by the Illinois One-Call System to excavators is free of charge.  The cost of JULIE is paid in full by member companies.
