DWR routinely includes a set of best management practices in construction contracts to address the potential for unanticipated discovery of archaeological materials. The environmental analysis will discuss the potential for impacts and will define mitigation measures aimed at reducing the potential for cultural resources to be disturbed or destroyed. This includes a measure that addresses the potential for “unanticipated discoveries” during construction, including specific requirements for tribal consultation, pre-construction awareness training, and requirements for stopping work in the vicinity of such discoveries until such time that a professional archaeologist is able to assess the discovery and work with DWR, in coordination with the appropriate regulatory and/or tribal authorities, to develop a plan for appropriate treatment.
