In accordance with an agreement between URS/Forrest and Cotton, Inc., consulting engineers (Dallas, Texas), and the Center for Archaeological Research at the University of Texas at San Antonio, an archaeological survey was conducted on property adjacent to the Del Rio International Airport, Val Verde County, Texas. The specific area examined during the survey is the proposed site for airport expansion and construction as part of the Del Rio International Airport Master Plan. The locality examined encompassed a total of 197 acres and extended along the runway, on the south, from approximately midway to approximately 800 meters beyond (going west) .
The main purpose of the survey was to determine if there existed any historic or archaeological evidence that would warrant preservation or further investigation. The stated objectives of the survey were:
1. Ascertain if archaeological or historical resources exist within the area to be affected.
2. Identify and appraise the significance of any resources found.
3. Evaluate the impact of project modification, if any, on the resources.
4. Recommend procedures for mitigation of any anticipated adverse impacts.
