TRC Environmental Corporation
Presentation Date: November 9, 2023
In this session, attendees will receive an overview of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, as it relates to Natural Gas Pipeline permitting efforts. The session will demonstrate the importance of cultural resources and the National Register of Historic Places to pipeline permitting efforts. Using real-world examples, the session will demonstrate how Section 106 compliance is achieved, and likely include some cool pictures of archaeology and artifacts.
