Texas Historical Commission


In July of 2016, Hicks & Company completed an archeological areal survey for the city of Coleman’s Proposed New Waterline Project located in Coleman County, Texas. The survey was completed for the city of Coleman under Texas Antiquities Permit #7704 with investigators surveying a total of 31 acres. The project will be funded through a Community Block Grant Program, as managed by the Texas Department of Agriculture, a political entity of the state of Texas, and is therefore subject to the Antiquities Code of Texas (ACT). The archeological investigations consisted of pedestrian survey supplemented by shovel testing (n = 6) along with backhoe trenching (n = 12). No cultural materials were encountered and no archeological sites were recorded during the course of the survey. Based on the results of the survey, regulatory clearance for the project is recommended to proceed with no further cultural resource coordination necessary. This report is offered in partial fulfillment of the requirements for ACT Permit #7704. All project-related materials will be curated at the Center for Archaeological Studies (CAS) in San Marcos, Texas.
