Cultural Resource Management

Projects involving cultural resource management require strong leadership. KLJ understands all aspects of cultural resource management including large block inventories, linear corridors, testing, mitigation, management plans, National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) recommendations and research-related cultural resource management. We hold the necessary state and federal permits to conduct cultural resource management investigations across the Northern Plains. Our team is well-versed in the latest cultural resource management research, legislation and practices.

Our cultural resources staff assists clients in understanding each detail of Section 106, and regularly works with environmental specialists to complete the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process for both large and small projects. Our professional archaeologists are able to seamlessly integrate Section 106 with NEPA cultural resource requirements.

KLJ staff members work to create solid relationships with Tribes who may have an interest in our clients’ projects. Early Tribal involvement can alleviate potential concerns that may impede or slow projects. Through open communication, we help clients account for Tribal concerns minimizing complications and allowing projects to move forward.
