DIGGER, JULIE, and various natural gas companies teamed up to sponsor an exhibit at the Chicago Flower and Garden Show this year to highlight the importance of calling either DIGGER (in Chicago) or JULIE (in the suburbs) before starting any subsurface work.
Gardeners need to get their utilities marked prior to digging for new trees, plants, or other large landscaping elements. Gabriel needs to get utilities marked before performing soil borings or removing underground storage tanks (USTs) and/or contaminated soil.
Gabriel highlighted the importance of calling JULIE/DIGGER in an earlier blog post: “Who is JULIE? And why do you call her before you dig?“
