The e106 system is designed to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency of the Section 106 review process by providing federal agencies with an electronic submittal system that serves to expedite a critical step in Section 106 review and encourage complete and accurate submissions that can be shared with others. Read the announcement regarding the availability of this system.

If so, please note whether the non-lead agencies will continue to have any Section 106 responsibilities for the undertaking.

  • be carried out with federal financial assistance, or
  • require a federal permit, license, or approval.

7. Describe the Area of Potential Effects:

Describe the area of potential effects (APE) for this undertaking. According to section 800.16(d), the APE is “the geographic area or areas within which an undertaking may directly or indirectly cause alterations in the character or use of historic properties, if any such properties exist.” Maps, photographs and/or drawings may be included to aid in describing the APE.

8. Describe steps taken to identify historic properties.

Describe the steps taken to identify historic properties within the APE, including who was consulted in developing the “reasonable and good faith” identification strategy.

9. Describe the historic property (or properties) and any National Historic Landmarks within the APE (or attach documentation or provide specific link to this information).

Describe the historic property or properties that may be affected by the undertaking, including photographs, maps, and drawings as necessary. Are there any National Historic Landmarks (NHLs) within the APE? This description should include information on the applicable National Register criteria of significance (e.g., A - D), character - defining features, integrity, boundaries, and environmental setting and geographic location if they contribute to the property’s significance. Please note that a more detailed description of the affected historic properties may be attached to the form. If this information is already on a current National Register or state register form, attach that form.

10. Describe the undertaking's effects on historic properties.

Describe the undertaking’s effects to the historic property or properties. An effect is defined in section 800.16(i)) as any “alternation to the characteristics of a historic property qualifying it for inclusion in or eligibility for the National Register.”

Explain how this undertaking would adversely affect historic properties. State any currently known conditions or future actions to avoid, minimize, or mitigate adverse effects. As set forth in section 800.5(a)(1)) an adverse effect is found when “an undertaking may alter, directly or indirectly, any of the characteristics of a historic property that qualify the property for inclusion in the National Register in a manner that would diminish the integrity of the property’s location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, or association. Consideration shall be given to all qualifying characteristics of a historic property, including those that may have been identified subsequent to the original evaluation of the property’s eligibility for the National register. Adverse effects may include reasonably foreseeable effects caused by the undertaking that may occur later in time, be farther removed in distance or be cumulative.”

(Note that if NHLs may be adversely affected by the undertaking, the regulations (at section 800.10(c)) require the federal agency to notify the NPS and invite their participation to resolve adverse effects.)
