JULIE Reminder
Planning a home improvement job?  Planting a tree? Installing a fence or deck? WAIT!  Here's what you need to know first.  Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling JULIE at 811 before each job.  Homeowners often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked, but every digging job requires a call - even small projects like planting trees and shrubs.

Call JULIE at 811 at least 48 hours or two business days prior to digging, tell the operator where you're planning to dig, what type of work you will be doing and your affected local utility companies will be notified about your intent to dig.  Within 48 hours or two business days, they'll send a locator to mark the approximate location of you underground lines, pipes and cables, so you'll know whats below --- and be able to dig safely.
