An Archaeological Survey of a Proposed 24" Water Main Alignment in Central Brazos County, Texas
The construction corridor associated with a 17,000 foot water line in central Brazos County, Texas was examined for the presence of significant archaeological sites by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) in December 2002 and February 2003. The field survey was supervised by William E. Moore who was the Principal Investigator. The majority of the proposed water line (15,100 feet) will be placed along city and county roads in an area already disturbed by various utilities and road construction. This segment is a low probability area for the presence of significant archaeological sites since the soils overlying clay are shallow and the water line route does not cross or pass near any major streams. The remaining 1900 feet of the proposed water line, however, traverses cross-country on private property in a setting not disturbed by city utilities or road construction. This segment is closer to Turkey Creek, a first order stream that flows into the Brazos River. In this area shovel testing and probing was conducted. No archaeological sites were found and it is, therefore, recommended that the City of Bryan be allowed to proceed with construction as planned. Copies of the report are on file at the Texas Historical Commission, Archeology Division; the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL); the City of Bryan; and BVRA.
