Archaeological Survey of the West Salado Creek Lift Station Project, San Antonio, Texas
Center for Archaeological Research
During October of 1999, archaeologists from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio conducted a pedestrian survey, shovel testing, and backhoe trenching along a portion of Salado Creek in southeastern San Antonio, Texas in order to identify cultural resources that may be impacted by a proposed sewer line. The project encompassed three areas (Phase I, II, and III) where the proposed route of a sewer line was to cross Salado Creek. Phase I and the east side of the Phase II crossing were surveyed. Results from shovel tests and backhoe trenches indicated that the proposed sewer line would not impact cultural resources in Phase I and the eastern portion of Phase II. The survey was not conducted on the west side of Salado Creek in Phase II and all of Phase III due to changes in city planning. This work will need to be completed if, or when, the sewer project is reinstated
