Review and Compliance
(Section 106)

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act stipulates that federal agencies must consider the effects of their undertakings on properties listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The State Historic Preservation office (SHPO) has an important role in this process and consults with the Oklahoma Archeological Survey (OAS) under the program. The SHPO assists federal agencies or their recipients of funding, license, or permits to determine if significant archeological or historic resources are located within the project area and, if so, whether the undertaking will impact those properties. Depending on the situation, the SHPO helps the agency to develop appropriate mitigation of any adverse effects on these valuable resources. For detailed information, contact Catharine Wood 405/521-6381 or cwood@okhistory.org.
