cultural resources and archeology
The primary goal of cultural resource management is to identify, evaluate, and mitigate impacts to archeological sites and historic structures, and to ensure that the potential effect of a proposed undertaking on significant cultural resources is taken into account during project development and review.
edr provides strategic regulatory compliance services to guide our public and private sector clients through the requirements of National, State and Local historic preservation laws. We are members of the American Cultural Resources Association (ACRA) and are well-versed in cultural resource regulations such as: Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), Section 14.09 of the New York State Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation Law, and the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA).
