National 811 Day Reminds Residents to Exercise Safe Digging Practices

Nicor Gas, Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas reminded residents planning late summer landscaping projects to call the Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators (JULIE) 8-1-1 Hotline at least 48 hours/two business days before digging to prevent injury, outages, or unnecessary damage to underground facilities.
This reminder coincided with National 811 Day on Aug.11, a day that promotes the use of the free service to locate and mark underground utility lines to help prevent serious injury, costly property damage and inconvenient utility service interruptions.
