Cultural Resources Survey of the Proposed North 2 Elevated Storage Tank and Access Road, El Paso County, Texas
Texas Historical Commission
On 23 November 2016, Versar Inc. performed a pedestrian survey for the proposed No 2. Elevated Storage Tank and access Road. The inventory followed the standards outlined under THC’s Archaeological Survey Standards for Texas and Rules of Practice and Procedure for the Antiquities Code of Texas for 5.94 acres of land in northeast El Paso, El Paso County, Texas. The proposed survey parcel is positioned adjacent to U.S. Highway 54-along the east-northeast margin of the highway. The rectangular parcel terminates immediately south of the existing Kinder Morgan pipeline ROW corridor. The area of potential effect is on property owned by El Paso Water, a sub-entity of the City of El Paso. The project goal was to identify all prehistoric and historic archaeological sites in the survey parcel and make National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) eligibility recommendations for any newly discovered sites. The survey documented no cultural resource sites and no isolated finds. Due to the lack of cultural resources and a general absence of geomorphic/cultural context, no further work is recommended for the APE proposed for the No. 2 Elevated Storage Tank and access Road.
