An Archaeological Survey of Proposed System Improvements for the Alto Rural Water Supply Corporation in Southeast Cherokee County, Texas
An archaeological evaluation of a proposed 59.44 mile water line in southeast Cherokee County, Texas was performed by Brazos Valley Research Associates in May 2003 under Texas Antiquities Permit 3126. This project was reviewed by the Texas Historical Commission, Archeology Division. Federal involvement is through the United States Department of Agriculture, Rural Development. The background check revealed four archaeological sites (41CE19, 41CE51, 41CE66, and 41CE73) within or near the project area right-of-way. A visit to the project area prior to the field survey, identified 15 areas as likely settings for prehistoric sites. However, no previously recorded sites were found during the field survey. The two areas within the boundaries of previously recorded sites 41CE19 and 41CE66 are recommended for monitoring. Otherwise, it is recommended that the Alto Rural Water Supply Corporation be allowed to proceed with construction as planned with no further archaeological investigations. Copies of this report are on file at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory; Texas Historical Commission, Archeology Division; Alto Rural Water Supply Corporation in Alto, Texas; and Brazos Valley Research Associates in Bryan, Texas.
