Help, I Need An Archeologist
If you clicked on this link, chances are you have a project that requires archeological services. We can help guide you through the Section 106 process necessary to complete your project.
How do you proceed?
- Contact ALAC by telephone, email, mail, or fax
- Provide your contact information
- Provide a detailed map of the project location and/or the project's specific legal location
- Explain the nature of the project (type of project, amount of proposed ground disturbance).
- Name the lead federal or state agency requiring the project.
How will ALAC proceed?
- Prepare and submit a proposal that includes a cost estimate based on the map and information submitted by the client, and a proposed time schedule for completing the project fieldwork and report.
- If the proposed cost estimate is accepted and an authorization to proceed is received, a records search will be conducted prior to the field work (survey and evaluation).
- Complete the field work.
- Prepare and submit a technical report. Final clearance for your project is then determined by your state’s Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) or lead agency.
- In cases where a NRHP-eligible site is identified, mitigation may be required. This would require development of a mitigation plan and a separate, additional cost proposal.
