Whether it is for a mine permit, a waterline project, or any other type of construction project, if an archaeological survey is required before your permit can be approved, the best way to deal with it is as soon as possible. This will allow for your project to move forward in a timely fashion, without last minute issues that may arise from the archaeological survey. If no archaeological resources are found during the Phase I investigation, the project should move forward without anymore issues related to potential archaeological resources on-site. However, if archaeological resources are discovered during the investigation, it will take more time to determine how to deal with the resources and what the next step should will be (i.e. Phase II, Avoidance of Resource, etc.). Many times consultation with multiple agencies is necessary, which can also cause delays in regulatory compliance completion.
