What to send SHPO:


SHPO Procedure for Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP)

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.
