BASIN RESEARCH ASSOCIATES INC., was founded in 1977 to provide cultural resources research and management expertise to government, industry and individuals throughout northern and central California and western Nevada.  We assist our clients in complying with the regulatory requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) as well as agency-specific regulations and local requirements.

BASIN’s staff of CRM professionals and support personnel has the regulatory, statutory and practical experience as well as the scientific knowledge necessary to guide our clients in making project development and management decisions.  Staff is supplemented by our long-term working relationships with architectural historians, soil scientists, paleontologists, and other discipline specialists responsive to the varied needs of cultural resources projects

BASIN's “lessons-learned” from past CRM projects and the experience and quality of both its senior and mid-level personnel have allowed the firm to develop a reputation of providing compliance services consistent with the mandates to protect and preserve cultural resources while remaining sensitive to client needs and regulatory requirements.  A large portion of our business is from long-term clients who value BASIN’s reputation for providing experienced, professional, cost-conscious and timely cultural resources guidance for their project needs.  BASIN is a certified California small business, is 50% woman owned and is a member of the American Cultural Resources Association as well as other professional groups.
