An Archaeological Survey for the Upper Leon River Municipal Water District Proposed Wastewater Treatment System Improvements Project in Eastern Comanche County, Texas
An archaeological evaluation of approximately 4 miles of proposed sewer force main and a proposed wastewater treatment plant at a 20 acre tract in eastern Comanche County, Texas was performed by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) in October 2003 for the Upper Leon River Municipal Water District (MWD) under Antiquities Permit 3220. This project will be funded by the United States Department of Agriculture, Rural Utility Services (RUS). The Principal Investigator was William E. Moore, and the Project Archaeologist was Edward P. Baxter. A survey consisting of surface inspection and shovel testing did not locate any prehistoric sites. A 20 acre tract, the site of the proposed wastewater treatment plant, is part of a former large farmstead, and this area had been used as pasture for cattle. Within this tract, a trash dump containing modern glass bottles, jars, and tin containers was found in the southeast corner. At the time of this survey a windmill and stock tank were present in the northeast part of the tract. No significant archaeological sites were found and no artifacts were collected that warrant curation. It is recommended that construction be allowed to proceed as planned with no further work by a professional archaeologist. Copies of the report are on file at the Texas Historical Commission, Archeology Division; Texas Archeological Research Laboratory; BVRA; and the Upper Leon River MWD.
