An Archaeological Survey for the Riverside Water Supply Corporation Warren Plant Improvements Project in Walker and San Jacinto Counties Texas
Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) conducted a Phase I archaeological survey for the Riverside Water Supply Corporation (WSC) Warren Plant Improvements Project (12.5 acres) under Antiquities Permit 5347. William E. Moore was the Principal Investigator, and Edward P. Baxter was the Project Archaeologist. No new sites were found as a result of this investigation. Six previously recorded sites are within or near the Area of Potential Effect (APE), and shovel tests were excavated in the APE on or near these sites in four cases. The six sites in or near the project area are 41SJ42 and 41SJ43 in San Jacinto County and 41WA73, 41WA89, 41WA187, and 41WA283 in Walker County. These sites consist of five unknown prehistoric sites and Camp Huntsville (41WA283), a World War II camp for prisoners of war. No evidence was found that indicates undisturbed portions of any of these sites are within the APE as indicated on the maps provided by the client. The authors recommend that construction be allowed to proceed as planned. Copies of the final report are on file at the Texas Historical Commission (THC), Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), BVRA, the engineering firm Stolz Engineering & Associates, Inc. and the Riverside WSC. No artifacts were collected, and no records were curated.
