Cultural resource reviews and surveys are required under the National Historic Preservation Action of 1966 (NHPA). More specifically, Section 106 of the NHPA requires that every federal agency or action demonstrate compliance with the NHPA. As a result, any Federal permitting action or funding requires that Section 106 of the NHPA is complied with. The Headwaters staff has years of experience in coordinating the Section 106 compliance in conjunction with the Federal permitting activities.
