Cultural Resources Survey for the Montana Vista Proposed Wastewater Facility System, El Paso County, Texas
Texas Historical Commission
TRC conducted an intensive, linear pedestrian survey of two proposed option routes for residential wastewater collectors for the Montana Vista Proposed Wastewater Facility System in East El Paso. The project area is located within El Paso County, Texas. The project proposes approximately 188,285 feet of 8-inch sewer lines throughout the residential streets, which will reach depths of approximately 25 feet. A proposed collection line will run along Greg Rd/Edgemere Blvd for approximately 13,150 feet. This collector line will consist of 12-inch, 15-inch, and 18-inch sewer pipes that will reach depths of approximately 35 feet. This proposed collector line will tie into an existing 30-inch line at the intersection of Edgemere Blvd and Tim Floyd. The majority of the roads within the overall project area are paved. Three isolated prehistoric artifacts (two El Paso brownware sherds and one uniface fragment tool) were identified. In addition, the areas appeared highly impacted by localized dumping of furniture, tires, building material, construction material, modern glass beer bottles, off-road vehicle tracks, and windblown trash. The archeological pedestrian survey was conducted under TAC #7153. No further work is recommended for the project area.
