Electrical Generation and Cultural Heritage Stewardship on the Banks of the Ohio River: An NHPA Success Story!
Author(s): W. Kevin Pape
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L) has invested in a long-term commitment to cultural heritage stewardship, through their role as applicant under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, at their JM Stuart Generating Station, in Adams County, Ohio. For almost 25 years, DP&L has worked closely with state and federal permitting agencies to advance cultural resources studies, formulate innovative treatment and mitigation plans, develop productive engagement with tribes, and broadly share the results of these studies with the public. In addition to the traditional range of CRM studies, DP&L has supported geoarchaeological and landscape reconstruction analyses, historic cemetery restoration, dedication of easement covenants to protect ancestral remains in perpetuity, publication of synthetic research, funding commitments for tribal cultural sensitivity training, and public outreach. Through their leadership, remarkable advancements in archaeological research have been carefully integrated into the environmental review process.
