Pen Del Associates

Pen Del Associates retained Langan to conduct an extended Phase IB/limited Phase II archaeological testing on a proposed 146-residential housing development site. This archaeological survey was conducted subject to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Waterfront Development Act and the NJDEP Development Permit Application. Langan’s work was a continuation of a Phase I investigation conducted by Alan Mounier, a well-known archaeologist in New Jersey.  Part of the investigation was to evaluate artifact concentration areas as established in the earlier investigation.  The archaeological testing found that there was a significant amount of disturbance in the prehistoric and historic archaeological layers. Langan’s recommendation was for no additional work on the site. New Jersey SHPO concurred and the site was cleared to proceed with the project.
