An Archaeological Survey for the Shelbyville Water Supply Corporation Two-Mile Water Line Project in Shelby County Texas
An archaeological survey of a proposed 1.72-mile water line in south- central Shelby County, Texas was performed on April 27, 2008 by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) for the Shelbyville Water Supply Corporation (WSC) under Antiquities Permit 4898. In all, the area comprises 3.13 acres. One high probability area adjacent to Beauchamp Creek was investigated by shovel testing. Four shovel tests dug through sandy soil to depths of 80 cm were negative in terms of producing cultural materials, and no artifacts were collected. Therefore, it is recommended that construction be allowed to proceed as planned. Copies of the report are on file at the Texas Historical Commission (THC), Archeology Division; Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL); and BVRA.
