11-WA-a State Cultural Considerations Overview

The developer will be required to comply with Washington state law when human remains or other cultural resources are discovered on a project site. Cultural resources include both historic and archaeological resources and sites. The discovery of cultural resources may require obtaining a permit and providing public notice and notice to Indian Tribes. Once the necessary procedures have been followed, the developer may continue with the project.
