INFORMATION NEEDED

You can expedite the locate request process by having the following information:

  • Your name, company, address, phone and fax number at which you can be reached. 
  • The name and phone number of the construction site contact. Provide a cell phone or direct line number. Do not provide an 800 number or a general office contact who is not familiar with the project.
  • The county and city, village or unincorporated area of the township in which the excavation is taking place. One of the most common and dangerous mistakes excavators make is identifying the excavation site as within a village of city when it is actually in the township. This can occur when an unincorporated area is served by a post office within a city or village. It is the excavators responsibility to determine the exact location of the excavation site - city, village or unincorporated township, using appropriate mapping sources prior to submitting their locate request.
  • The location of the excavation or demolition, including address, cross street, lot numbers, etc.
  • The start date and time of the planned excavation or demolition
  • The type and extent of the work involved
  • Whether the excavation area has been white-lined using white paint, flags and/or stakes
  • The section/quarter sections if the above information is insufficient to let the statewide One-Call System to determine this information.

Each locate request is limited to 10 addresses on the same street and within the same block. The extent of work must be the same for all addresses listed.

Locate requests received after 4 p.m. are processed as if received at 8 a.m. the next business day. Utilities have two working days to mark their underground lines. Working days are defined as starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. and do not include Saturdays, Sundays or holidays.

USING GPS
Excavators submitting a locate request can provide latitude and longitude coordinates from Global Positioning System (GPS) units for their excavation projects in lieu of section grid information. To submit a locate request please call 811.

Using GPS coordinates is appropriate for single property excavations only.  If your project encompasses a large area, you will need to provide the section/quartersection numbers for your project.

JULIE's GIS Coordinator, Burt McAlpine is available to assist you with questions, but cannot generate locate request tickets. You can contact Burt at 636-586-0315 or McAlpine@JULIE1call.com.

Standard of Datum

  • WGS84 (World Geodetic System)
  • Decimal Degrees (DD.DDDDDD)
  • Degrees Decimal Minute (DD MM.MMMM)
