An Archaeological Survey for the Vidor Pipeline Project in Jefferson and Orange Counties Texas
An archaeological survey of a proposed natural gas pipeline in east Jefferson and west Orange counties, Texas was performed by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) on August 8th -10th, 2006. This investigation examined three high probability areas along the five mile pipeline route, all in Orange County. That part of the project area on the east side of the Neches River was in a marshy area with little relief. On the high ground above the river in Jefferson County, the entire area had been disturbed through pipeline construction and other development associated with oil and gas refining. Nineteen shovel tests were dug through sand and clay. No prehistoric or historic sites were identified, and no artifacts were collected. The pipeline as currently planned will have no affect on significant cultural resources. It is recommended that construction be allowed to proceed as planned. No artifacts were collected.
