Call J.U.L.I.E. Before You Dig! In Illinois it's the Law!
Before you dig, call J.U.L.I.E. (Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators) to locate all underground utilities in the area where digging will be done. It is essential that before you begin a construction project on your property you have the utilities located. Failure to do so may result in severe injury to yourself or damage to the utilities during digging. Should you damage utilities during excavation, you will be responsible for the repairs, which are often costly. 

Please call 1.800.892.0123 two working days before you dig.

When underground utilities are located a flag and/or painted marks will be left to indicate the utilities location. The following colors are used to identify the different utilities:

Blue Water
Green Sewer
Orange Communications (Telephone, Cable, Fiber Optic)
Pink Temporary Survey Markings
Red Electric
Yellow Gas, Oil or Steam
White Proposed Excavation
