TRC conducted an intensive, linear pedestrian survey of a proposed route for a sanitary sewer gravity line that will convey flows from the City of Vinton to a regional lift station. The regional lift station will be constructed by El Paso Water Utilities on their property. The sewer gravity line will range between 12 and 18 feet in diameter with a total length of more than 5,000 feet. Of the 5,000 feet, only 700 feet will cross the Rio Grande. The project area is located within El Paso County, Texas. The proposed line will cross Doniphan Rd, railroad tracks and easement, and the Rio Grande. The project area is within the floodplain of the Rio Grande.

Several modern trash dumping episodes were noted within the project area. The trash dumps consisted of modern ceramic tile fragments, roofing material, concrete fragments, wind-blown trash, miscellaneous milled wood, aluminum cans, and furniture fragments. No significant cultural materials were located or identified. The archeological pedestrian survey was conducted under TAC #7890. No further work is recommended for the project area.
