An Archaeological Survey for the Riverbend Midstream Partners, LP Neches River Crossing Project in Jasper and Tyler Counties Texas
RiverBend Midstream Partners, LP (client) proposes to install a natural gas pipeline that will pass beneath the Neches River in western Jasper and eastern Tyler counties, Texas. Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) and Dixie Environmental Services Co., LP (DESCO) were retained by the client to conduct an archaeological survey in order to identify the presence of significant cultural resources in the project area. The survey was conducted on two separate days. On April 23, 2010, Phil Bishop visited the project area, and J. Philip Washington joined him on April 27, 2010. The areas investigated are located in upland settings away from the sandy banks and natural levee of the river. The survey crew investigated the area through a surface inspection, shovel testing, and a bucket auger. No archaeological sites were found, and it is recommended that construction be allowed to proceed as planned. The area investigated consisted of 3.8 acres. The project area is on lands under the jurisdiction of the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District.
