On 25 July 2017, Versar Inc. performed a pedestrian survey for the proposed Franklin 1A 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 3.0-acres of land in northeast El Paso, El Paso County, Texas. The proposed survey area is positioned southeast of U.S. Highway 54 approximately 1.0-mile south of the Stan Roberts and U.S. Highway 54 intersection. The area of potential effect is on property owned by the El Paso Water-Public Service Board, 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 cultural properties. The survey documented no archaeological sites and only two 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 Franklin 1A Elevated Storage Tank and access road.
