Diamond Pipeline Monitoring Project 2016-2017
ORA successfully implemented a Cultural Resource Discovery and Monitoring Plan in order to conduct a large scale archaeological monitoring and archaeological investigation related to the installation and operation of a 430 mile subsurface pipeline. ORA trained construction personnel to understand the importance of protecting cultural resources. Archaeological Monitoring was conducted across the states of Oklahoma and Arkansas. ORA archaeologists identified and recorded prehistoric and historic archaeological sites. Collaborating with Federal, Sovereign Tribal and State authorities, ORA proactively avoided or mitigated sites in a manner that preserved and documented cultural resources while minimizing costly project delays.
