Please Dig Safely

Planning any spring spruce-ups?

Call WIEC and J.U.L.I.E. before beginning any outdoor projects

Is there a new deck in your future? Did the trees in the back yard die due to last summer’s dry spell? Before beginning any spring digging projects, look down. Are there any underground utility lines, water lines or telephone cable in the way?. Even when digging down only a few inches, it’s important to know what’s there. Many utilities are buried just inches below the surface.

Please call the WIEC office to locate underground electrical lines on either side of the meter. We ask for 24-hour notice. To locate water, sewer, phone, gas, cable and all other utility lines, call JULIE at 8-1-1 (or 1-800-892-0123). They require 48-hour notice. Both services are free.

By having professionals mark any underground lines in the area, you will avoid any potential serious injury and prevent possible damage to the utility lines that could disrupt service to your home and your neighbors. Besides being a good idea, calling J.U.L.I.E is the law.
