Archaeological Monitoring Plans (AMPs) and Construction Monitoring
If there is a potential for subsurface cultural materials or human burials to be present in an area where development activities will occur, the State may require that an Archaeological Monitoring Plan be submitted and approved prior to allowing work to proceed at the site.  PCSI’s archaeologists have prepared hundreds of AMPs for construction projects ranging from simple vegetative clearing to the construction of new buildings and infrastructure and provided monitoring during construction activities.

The AMP includes a review of known archaeological sites in and near the project site, an assessment of the likelihood of encountering cultural materials and a description of the monitoring procedures that will be conducted during construction.  The AMP must be reviewed and approved by the State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) before work can commence that might impact cultural resources.

Examples of recent AMP and monitoring projects conducted by PCSI include:
