The Village of Gurnee became an active member of J.U.L.I.E. (Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators) in 1991. Since then, Public Works has the responsibility for locating Village-owned and maintained underground utilities such as water, sanitary, and storm sewer lines, as required by State Law. The J.U.L.I.E. locate service is free to any homeowner, contractor, and/or excavator and is performed by the Public Works Department.
In order to perform this service, Public Works utilizes the latest underground piping locating equipment, a user-friendly interactive online mapping system, and a specialized software program.
Public Works employees are available to respond to any J.U.L.I.E. locate request during normal business hours and for all after hour emergency locate requests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. The employees respond to all emergency locate requests from a natural gas leak to a late night water or sewer repair. Public Works makes every effort to accurately dispatch, locate, and document each and every J.U.L.I.E. locate request.
