HP Communications Environmental Compliance
Working on U.S. Forest Service land in San Bernardino County, HELIX surveyed six failed pole locations for HP Communications to determine whether cultural resources were present. HELIX conducted a record search at the San Bernardino Archaeological Information Center (AIC) to determine if any resources had been previously recorded at or near the six poles. Subsequent to the record search, a pedestrian survey was conducted. The poles were located in a remote area with very steep terrain and required hand clearing of brush and debris to ascertain if there were historic or pre-contact age resources present. Following the field survey, a report was prepared providing the necessary details and findings.
