What to send SHPO:
The Utah State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) frequently receives requests from private companies to provide information in support of Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP/UPDES).
We do applaud efforts to identify cultural resources as part of assessing sites and projects; however, SHPO is neither mandated in statute nor funded to provide this type of information to private entities. These requests need to be directed to the Division of Water Quality (DWQ); DWQ is the agency responsible for the SWPPP/UPDES program. SHPO will consult directly with DWQ to address any historic preservation-related project issues.

Linear sites guidelines (roads, railroads, etc.)
Recommendations on compliance made by the Utah Professional Archaeological Council (UPAC)and endorsed by SHPO
