This report presents the results of an archeological survey for a 12-acre tract near Mill Creek, south of Farm-to-Market (FM) road 1488 in Montgomery County, Texas. The Montgomery County Municipal Utility District (MUD) 131 is proposing to build public utilities and make modifications to a tributary of Mill Creek on the 12-acre property, which requires consultation with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. This also necessitates compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (Section 106) and the Antiquities Code of Texas (ACT). Acacia Heritage Consulting conducted the archeological survey under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 9007. The survey involved visual inspection and subsurface testing in the form of eight shovel tests. Archeologists documented no artifacts or cultural material in any of the subsurface tests. No cultural material was observed on the surface either. The majority of the project area had recently been disturbed from tree removal and burning as part of the site preparation work done by the developer. As a result, surface visibility was nearly 100 percent across the project area and no artifacts or archeological materials were observed anywhere on the surface of this property. This report recommends that no further archeological work is warranted prior to construction of the 12-acre property.

No artifacts were collected. All notes and records will be curated at the Center for Archaeological Studies in San Marcos.
