FIELD BLOG -- October on Saipan
Monday, October 26th
We had two important meetings today; one was DEQ (Department of Environmental
Quality) and HPO (Historic Preservation Office).
At the meeting in DEQ, the official earthmoving permit for Tanapag was finally issued!
It's been almost 2 years and half since the submission of the application, so our dream finally came true!
However, at the meeting in HPO, we were required to revise the research design and re-submit for the approval.
Our archaeologists are working on revising the papers, and plan to submit in the early morning.
The time and money is very limited for this project, so we do not want to waste any time.
But we are almost there, and are hoping to start the dig from tomorrow morning.
