Archaeological Survey

Archaeological identification surveys locate and identify cultural resources that may be present in a project area.

The survey begins with consultation between the client or agency and the State Historic Preservation Officer. If the project occurs on or affects tribal lands, one or more Native American tribes may be included in the consultation. After designating the project area and scope, information about known or potential historic properties - archaeological sites, structures, objects, and buildings - is collected. Information is gathered from cultural resource management reports, state site files, knowledgeable persons, and field survey conducted under The Secretary of the Interior Standards and Guidelines for Identification and applicable state, tribal, and local laws and guidelines.

Evaluation Surveys

If the project has the potential to impact historic properties or sensitive areas, an evaluation survey may be undertaken.
