  • What is JULIE?  Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavation, also known as the “Illinois One-Call System, is a not-for-profit corporation that provides homeowners and professional excavators with a toll-free number for free locating and marking of underground facilities.
  • Why call JULIE?  You may be surprised by what’s buried in your yard.  That’s because today, more electric, gas, water, sewer and telecommunications companies are delivering utility service underground.  To avoid personal injury and damage to those lines, state law requires you to call JULIE before any digging project, regardless of the project size or depth.

  • When do I call JULIE?  Anyone planning an outdoor project that requires any type of digging. 

Projects may include but are not limited to:

  • Decks & Patios  
  • Fences  
  • Room Additions
  • Trees or Shrubs  
  • Mailbox Posts  
  • Gardens  
  • Swing Sets
  • Signs
  • Fountains  
  • Swimming Pool  
  • Tents

 

State law requires the person actually doing the digging, to call JULIE at least 48 hours (two (2) working days, excludes weekends and holidays) prior to the start  of the digging.

  • What happens after the call?  At the end of the call, the JULIE representative will provide you with a “dig number” for your records. JULIE will notify each member utility company with the information you provided to JULIE.  Within two (2) working days, a representative of each utility will locate and mark the location of their underground facility (if present) with the appropriate color paint and/or flags. (see flags at left) You must begin your project within 14 days from  the time you make the call.
  • What else should I know?   Respect the marks and dig with care.  Carefully hand expose all utilities within the tolerance zone.  The tolerance is zone is 18 inches on either side of the mark.  If you accidentally damage the facility, please call the utility company. 

    Call the Village of Morton Utility Office at 266-5361 ...
    if you damage the coating or dent, scratch or gouge any gas pipe.
