An archaeological survey of the proposed 362 acre (146 hectares) Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency, Inc. (BVSWMA, Inc.) East Expansion Project, in Grimes County, Texas was performed by Ed Baxter Consulting in April, May, June and July of 2017. Edward P. Baxter was the Principal Investigator and the Project Archaeologist. The survey took a total of ten man days in the field. This study was completed under Texas Antiquities Committee Permit Number 7987. The project area was investigated using the pedestrian survey method supported by shovel testing. In all, the project area surveyed consisted of 294 acres (119 hectares) since previous archaeological surveys have been conducted on 68 acres (28 hectares) of the tract. No previously recorded archaeological sites or cemeteries were found in the project area. The survey found no new archaeological sites. Copies of the final report are housed at the Texas Historical Commission (THC), Archeology Division, the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), the Texas State Library, and at Ed Baxter Consulting (College Station, Texas).
