An Archaeological Survey for the Parker County Special Utility District Water System Improvements in Parker County, Texas
The Parker County Special Utility District (SUD) in central Parker County, Texas plans to install a six-inch water line that will serve its customers. The length of the water line will be 7300 feet with an easement of 15 feet (2.51 acres). In response to a request by the Texas Historical Commission (THC), an archaeological survey was performed by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) on November 22 and 23, 2011 under Antiquities Permit 6095. This investigation consisted of a Pedestrian Survey and shovel testing on both banks of Grindstone Creek, the only stream in the Area of Potential Effect (APE). No prehistoric or historic sites were identified, and it was recommended that construction be allowed to proceed as planned. Fairview Cemetery (PR C079) is a historic cemetery owned by the Church of Christ that is located at least 200 feet from the route of the proposed water line. Therefore, it will not be affected. Copies of the report are on file at the THC, Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), BVRA, the Texas State Library, Parker County SUD, and Jacob & Martin, Ltd.
