Preservation Compliance

We Understand Preservation

Beaver Creek Archaeology adheres to the federal guidance on historic preservation as detailed in Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) as well as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) dictates that: “… prior to the approval of the expenditure of any Federal funds on the undertaking or prior to the issuance of any license,…, take into account the effect of the undertaking on any district, site, building, structure, or object that is included in or eligible for inclusion in the National Register.”

Section 106 of the NHPA gets integrated with the National Environmental Policy Act process (NEPA review) as both acts require Federal agencies to “stop, look, and listen” before making decisions that impact historic properties and the human environment.

Through annual continuing education training the BCA staff remains current and well versed in the policies and procedures as well as the legal implications of these legislations. BCA is able to utilize this knowledge to better serve our clients and more adeptly converse with federal administrators.
