|If construction activities such as excavation or drilling are involved in the installation of the fence impacts such as the disturbance of buried archaeological resources or human remains could occur. Therefore, the impact of the project could be potentially significant.
|If digging is required to install the fence, work areas shall be monitored during construction by a qualified archaeologist. If cultural resources are identified, construction or excavation activities shall be temporarily halted or directed to other areas, pending the archaeologists evaluation of the resources significance.
The materials and site shall be recorded using standard archaeological survey methods. The site shall be evaluated by a qualified archaeologist for its significance in consultation with the Nevada Department of Historical Preservation and Archaeology. If significant resources are found, the site shall be avoided or a data recovery plan shall be developed and implemented to ensure that the information contained in the site is not lost. If the site is determined to not be significant, no further action is required.
If human remains are encountered, the archaeologist shall contact the appropriate County Coroner immediately, and security measures shall be implemented to ensure that burials are not vandalized. No further construction disturbance of the site shall occur until the decision of disposition has been made and implemented pursuant to applicable law.
