The temperature is rising and many homeowners are ready to dive into that next big landscaping project. Before going to the garden center or home improvement store to pick up rental equipment or to purchase shrubs, trees or other landscaping needs, notify JULIE at least two business days before the start of the project. JULIE’s call center agents are available 24/7 or go to www.illinois1call.com and click on E-Request.
“Across the nation, every six minutes an underground utility is damaged because someone decided to dig without notifying a one-call center such as JULIE,” said Kevin Chmura, JULIE’s Director of Public Relations. “Whether you are a professional excavator or a weekend warrior, every digging job – even small jobs such as planting trees and shrubs – requires notification to JULIE. This is a free service.”
