Conducting cultural resources investigations to identify cultural resources and historic properties for a proposed project is an important component of most project planning efforts. For those projects with a federal nexus, compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, is the primary impetus for conducting cultural resources investigations.
E & E’s extensive experience with the Section 106 compliance process gives us the expertise to assist federal agencies and project proponents or applicants requiring federal approval or permits from the earliest planning stages of a project through post-construction activities.
We have a proven track record of consulting with federal, state, and local agencies, and with federally recognized Indian tribes, and coordinating the Section 106 consultation process and cultural resources investigations to ensure that the process is completed in the appropriate project time frame.
