Texas Historical Commission


This report documents the substantive findings and management recommendations of a cultural resource inventory conducted by Integrated Environmental Solutions, LLC (IES) for the Indian Creek Channel Improvements Project, City of Carrollton, Denton County, Texas. Per the provisions of the Antiquities Code of Texas, as the project will transpire on land owned or controlled by the City of Carrollton, which is a political subdivision of the State of Texas, the proposed project will require coordination with the Texas Historical Commission (THC) prior to construction. In addition, as the project will require a Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), portions of the project within USACE jurisdiction will also be subject to the provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, as amended. All work conformed to 36 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 800, and 13 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) 26, which outline the regulations for implementing Section 106 of the NHPA and the ACT, respectively.

The goal of the survey was to locate, identify, and assess any cultural resources that could be adversely affected by the proposed development, and to evaluate such resources for their potential eligibility for listing as a State Antiquities Landmark (SAL) or eligibility for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).

The cultural resources inventory was conducted by archeologists Kevin Stone and Anne Gibson 08 June 2017, under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 8016. During the IES survey, no cultural resources were encountered within the 17.6-acre Area of Potential Effects.

No artifacts were collected as part of this survey. All records will be temporarily curated at the IES McKinney office and permanently curated at the Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum (CSM) in Denton, Texas. No further work is warranted. However, if any archeological sites are encountered during construction, the operators should stop construction activities, and immediately contact the project environment representative to initiate coordination with the THC prior to resuming any construction activities.
