Cultural Resources Identification Survey - Northern Undeveloped Land at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory Site

Between March and August 2010, at the request of CDM Federal Services, CRM TECH performed a cultural resources identification survey on approximately 182 acres of undeveloped land in the Simi Hills area of Ventura County, California. The purpose of the study is to provide the DOE and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the necessary information to determine, in advance of the EPA's proposed gamma walkover survey of the Northern Undeveloped Land, if that survey could have an effect on any "historic properties," as defined by Section 106, National Historic Preservation Act.
