Cucamonga Creek Watershed Regional Water Quality Project
Client: City of Ontario
Market Sector: Infrastructure
Project Location: Chino, CA
ESA PCR’s archaeologists prepared and implemented a Phase II Archaeological Testing and Evaluation Plan of an archaeological site in coordination with the City of Ontario and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The project involved the creation of a regional natural treatment system designed to improve water quality during dry and wet weather conditions by diverting flows into a series of natural water quality ponds. The archaeological testing was required to determine whether the site was eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, in order to comply with the regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
ESA PCR was tasked with completing the Phase II assessment under a tight deadline to ensure the larger environmental document would be completed in time for public review. ESA PCR met this challenge by increasing field personnel and completed the project one week ahead of schedule.
