How do I locate the water or sewer line on my property?
Call the Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators (JULIE), at 1.800.892.0123, and provide at least 48 hours in advance. They will notify all member utilities, who will locate buried facilities in the area. This includes Water, Sewer, Storm Sewer, Electrical, Natural Gas, Phone and Cable.


Your property, street or curb may be marked with colored spray paint to locate the utility lines.

  • Blue spray paint = Water Line
  • Green spray paint = Sanitary Sewer, Storm Sewer Line
  • Red spray paint = Electrical Line
  • Yellow spray paint = Gas Line
  • Orange spray paint = Communications Line
