The City of Jurupa Valley in Riverside County, CA, contracted PanGIS for both archaeological and paleontological services. The client was a commercial real estate development firm building a 1.4-acre retail shopping center. PanGIS was hired to fulfill mitigation measures required under CEQA and City guidelines.
PanGIS staff provided WEAP (Workers Environmental Awareness Program) training for construction workers prior to groundbreaking. The training included pamphlets for recognizing archaeological and paleontological resources as well as instructions regarding the suspension of work activities within the area of a find.
PanGIS provided archaeological monitoring during construction and a Paleontological Resources Impact Mitigation Program (PRIMP) prior to construction. After construction was complete, PanGIS submitted the archaeological and paleontological monitoring reports to the City, thereby, satisfying the mitigation measures for cultural resources.
