A Cultural Resources Survey of the Redland Est. & Angelina Co. Sewer Improvements (TWDB CWSRF No. 73677) Angelina County, Texas
Texas Historical Commission
On the 30th and 31st of December 2014 Deep East Texas Archaeological Consultants (DETAC) conducted a cultural resource management survey of the proposed 15.3 kilometers (9.5 miles) of sewer lines and a one acre expansion of an existing water treatment facility in the community of Redland, Texas. All 15.3 km (9.5 mi) were examined and shovel tests were excavated in areas not disturbed by drainage ditches, road surfaces, or other buried utilities. No artifacts were found during the surface inspection or in shovel tests; therefore, no artifacts were curated. The visual examination found the proposed sewer lines will pass near two cemeteries; all of the graves near the proposed line are from the twentieth century or later. One area near the project area may be the location of the first building in Redland, but a drainage ditch and other buried utilities in the area suggest the chance of finding intact features in the project area is minimal. No further investigations are recommended; however, if any cultural material is recovered during construction, then excavation should stop and DETAC contacted to evaluate the impact. DETAC is requesting concurrence with the determination of “no effect” on NRHP eligible properties for the proposed project area.
