On December 3, 2014, an archeologist with Prewitt and Associates, Inc., conducted an intensive archeological survey of two parcels totaling 13.5 acres in Round Rock in southern Williamson County, Texas. The survey was completed prior to proposed residential development on Lots 3 and 6 in Turtle Creek Village, just west of A. W. Grimes Boulevard.

The survey found that the project area has been extensively disturbed by cultivation, erosion, earthmoving, and the channelization of Dry Branch Creek, which bisects the project area. Fourteen shovel tests excavated in the project area encountered no archeological materials; many of them identified areas of graded fill, and one contained modern trash. A few lithic fl akes were observed on the surface, but they were on or near imported fi ll and likely of nonlocal origin; these flakes were not designated an archeological site.

The project area has been substantially disturbed and has no potential for archeological sites that are eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Therefore, it is recommended that the proposed project be allowed to proceed without additional archeological investigations.
