This report presents the results of one day of archeological monitoring and visual inspection during repairs to a levee located in northwestern Navarro County, Texas. These repairs, which required draining standing water, raking and grading wet areas, and opening borrow areas as the source for filler clay soils for the levee, were conducted over a segment of levee 1.3 kilometers (0.8 miles) long. Disturbed areas were estimated at 1.09 hectares (2.69 acres). Two phases of investigations were conducted during the repairs: the first was to monitor ongoing repairs, and the second was to inspect areas of prior disturbance. These investigations, conducted for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, were designed to evaluate the impact to historic properties. Archeological monitoring and visual inspection failed to identify any cultural materials or deposits. Geo-Marine, Inc., does not recommend any further cultural resources investigations at this location.
