An Archaeological Survey for the Water Distribution Improvement Project at Lake Falls Estates in Walker County, Texas
The Walker County Special Utility District (SUD) proposes to install a four- inch water line within the Lake Falls Estates subdivision in central Walker County, Texas. An archaeological survey of the area in close proximity to previously recorded prehistoric site 41WA56 was requested by the Texas Historical Commission (THC) in order to determine if significant portions of this site is within the Area of Potential Effect (APE). This survey was conducted by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) on May 8, 2010 under Antiquities Permit 5630. The Principal Investigator was William E. Moore, and he was assisted in the field by Randall Anderson. The project area was investigated by shovel testing. One probable secondary flake made from quartzite was found at 70 cm in the first shovel test, but no additional cultural materials were found in three adjacent tests. The area has been greatly disturbed since prehistoric site 41WA56 was first recorded, and there is no evidence of this site today. It is, therefore, recommended that the Walker County SUD be allowed to proceed as planned. The area investigated consisted of 0.37 acre. The state agency involved in this project is the Texas Department of Rural Affairs, and Rachel Louviere is the agency contact.
