what we do

Archaeology

Protecting our connection to the past

Our archaeologists work to preserve our connections to past cultures through recovery, identification, and monitoring of artifacts and sites. We help our clients comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Our archaeological testing and data recovery experience ranges from single-site eligibility testing to large, complex data recovery projects involving multiple sites and temporal affiliations. Parametrix maintains a laboratory equipped with the tools needed to conduct in-house artifact analysis and sample processing.

Pojoaque Basin Regional Water System EIS
New Mexico

Client: Bureau of Reclamation, Albuquerque Area
Partner: EMPSi

This project consists of surface water diversion, treatment, transmission, storage, and distribution facilities, as well as approximately 190 linear miles of water transmission and distribution pipelines to serve water users in the arid Pojoaque Basin including four Northern Rio Grande Pueblos (Nambé, Pojoaque, Tesuque, and San Ildefonso). Parametrix is part of the team preparing the EIS. We have provided archaeological and historic built environment inventories, tribal consultation support, wildlife and vegetation surveys, and wetland mapping/Section 404 permitting support. Work has involved extensive literature reviews and methods of analysis plans for the cultural and natural resources of the approximately 5,000-acre study area.
