Center for Archaeological Research




In July of 1992, the Center for Archaeological Research at the University of Texas at San Antonio was contracted to monitor the installation of a water line crossing the Espada acequia at the intersection of Espada Road and Camino Coahuilteca in south San Antonio. Upon notification in May of 1993 that the project was to be accomplished, an archaeologist from the center met with representatives from the Engineering and Installation section of the San Antonio City Water System and arranged for an archaeologist to be in attendance during critical phases of the installation. The project fieldwork was initiated on June 1, 1993. The installation crews excavated beneath the course of the acequia and installed a twelve inch iron pipe through which the six inch pipeline was introduced six feet below the acequia. The work was accomplished without incident and no artifacts or historical structures were encountered. No further work is required at this time.
