Appropriate treatment of cultural resources
Padre’s cultural resources/archaeology staff is familiar with all aspects of archaeological excavations and archival research including literature search, Native American coordination, reconnaissance-level pedestrian survey, site identification and documentation, Phase II subsurface testing and evaluation, Phase III data recovery excavations, and archaeological construction monitoring. Our senior archaeologist meets the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualifications Standards for archaeology and is a Registered Professional Archaeologist.
In coordination with our compliance staff, Padre offers our clients the professional guidance and technical skills needed to successfully navigate Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), CEQA, and numerous county and municipal laws pertaining to cultural resources. Our cultural resources/archaeology staff also facilitates communication between our clients and other interested parties such as State and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers, agency staff, and the public.
