Center for Archaeological Research
In 1997 the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) conducted archaeological investigations for San Antonio Water Systems (SAWS) in conjunction with sewer and water-line installations for the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center Expansion Project in downtown San Antonio. Gradall trenching was used to test portions of the proposed route of a 60-inch sanitary-sewer line being installed in connection with the construction project. Excavation for the sewer line and for an additional 8-inch water main within HemisFair Park were periodically monitored. Although three late-nineteenth-or early-twentieth century features were encountered, no pre-1850 deposits were impacted by this utility installation project.
