Re: Knutson Farm EIS

The Nisqually Indian Tribe’s THPO has reviewed the SEPA checklist and accompanying documents that were provided for the above named project and are glad to see that cultural resources are going to be considered during the early stages of the EIS. The Nisqually Indian Tribe
would like to see a thorough sub-surface survey of the entire area using comprehensive background research into the long history of the Puyallup Valley as a guide. Please
keep us informed if there are any Inadvertent Discoveries of Archaeological Resources/Human Burials.
