The City of Pittsfield, in cooperation with state and federal agencies, is working to make the natural gas pipeline system serving its customers as safe as possible by sharing safety information with those individuals who live or work near pipelines. Key components of the education are one-call notification and response to leak complaints. In Illinois, the one-call program is called JULIE (Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators). To contact JULIE call 811 or 1-800-892-0123. Your notice to dig must be made 48-hours (two working days) before excavation starts, and the project must begin within 14-calendar days from the time of the call to JULIE. If you live or work near a natural gas pipeline operated by the City of Pittsfield, you will receive a special pipeline safety pamphlet. This pamphlet contains critical information to educate you on safety around pipelines. Please review the information and complete and return the reply card. Your response will assist the City in evaluating the safety program and provide valuable information on ways to improve the program.
