The Illinois Wood Utilization Team is getting a groundswell of support from JULIE 811, the free go-to source for Illinois excavators to contact before breaking ground on a project.
JULIE, short for Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators, alerts utilities about impending excavations so that underground lines can be marked to prevent damage to pipes and cables.
Through a cooperative arrangement, JULIE personnel will distribute information about IL WUT’s Bringing the Urban Forest Full Circle Conference at a series of Excavator Safety Meetings planned throughout the state by the Northern/Central Illinois Pipeline Association.
Each of the free-admission meetings will feature a keynote presentation by a JULIE damage prevention manager and a breakfast buffet.
