An Archaeological Survey for the City Merkel Water Addition S Project in Taylor County Texas
Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) conducted an archaeological survey of three areas in Taylor County, Texas on September 6, 2007 for the City of Merkel under antiquities permit 4661. The areas investigated by BVRA were the crossing of Bull Wagon Creek by Interstate Highway 20, the site of a proposed pump station, and an existing pump station where a single pump will be installed. Prehistoric site 41TA79 has been recorded in the vicinity of the crossing of Bull Wagon Creek by the interstate, and prehistoric site 41TA254 has been recorded in the vicinity of the existing pump station. No evidence of these sites was found within the Area of Potential Effect (APE) for this project. It is, therefore, recommended that construction of the water line and pump station and improvements to the existing pump station be allowed to proceed as planned without further consultation from the Texas Historical Commission. No artifacts were collected. The size of the project is 0.53 acre.
