In August 2017, Deep East Texas Archaeological Consultants (DETAC) conducted a cultural resource management survey of the proposed Farmersville sewer system improvements in Collin County, Texas (TWDB/THC #201700814) under Texas Antiquities Permit #7990. Proposed improvements include 12.3 km (7.6 mi) along seven pipelines along with modifications to three lift stations and the construction of four lift stations. Total project area was 7.7 hectares (19.1 acres). Shovel testing and visual examination did not find any evidence of cultural resources; no artifacts were collected. DETAC is requesting a concurrence with the determination of “no effect” to previously recorded archaeological sites, State Archaeological Landmarks, or NRHP eligible properties for the proposed project as applied to jurisdiction under the Antiquities Code of Texas (ACT). If dark greasy soils, artifacts, or bones are encountered during construction, then all excavation should stop and a qualified archaeologist should be contacted to investigate the site before continuing with the proposed work.
