Utah Geothermal Cultural Resource Assessment(11-UT)
In Utah, state agencies and developers using state funds must take into account how their expenditures or undertakings will affect historic properties through submission of a written evaluation to the Utah State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). The written evaluation is required if the project has the potential to affect cultural or historic resources within the state. If historic properties are located at the project location and they will be adversely affected by the project, then the state agency must develop a plan to mitigate the impacts of the project on historic or cultural resources. Developers must comply with notice requirements if archaeological resources are discovered on the project site during development. Developers are also required to follow specific procedures if human remains are discovered on the project site during development, with further notice requirements if the remains are Native American.
