Contracted since 2010 to Coeur D’Alene Trust (Trust), HRA has been assisting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in following its applicable or relevant and appropriate requirements in order to comply with the substance of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act as regards its cleanup actions at the Bunker Hill Superfund Site (BHSS) in Northern Idaho’s Silver Valley. Included in these endeavors have been cultural resources and historic preservation services (survey, inventory, effects assessments, recording, reporting, monitoring, etc.) associated with specific cleanup actions; facilitating consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) and Tribal Historic Preservation Officer (THPO); and assisting the Trust/EPA in drafting (and ultimately implementing) a programmatic approach (in the form of a historic properties management plan) to managing historic resources within the BHSS area of effects.
