LISTEN: Ameren Highlights Dangers of Digging without Calling 811

August 28th, 2019- Pipeline Strike Demos were offered this year at the Farm Progress Show to illustrate the danger of digging before calling the free service 811 Demo Gas Pipelines were installed at the show site for the sole purpose of simulating accidentally hitting a gas line. Gina Meehan Taylor, Supervisor of Public Awareness at Ameren, says you should always call 811 when doing a project that involves digging.  Even projects at your own home. 8-1-1 is a national number but in Illinois, it connects to a nonprofit organization called J.U.L.I.E (Say like the name)
