Texas Historical Commission


Between December 3 and 8, 2018, Blanton & Associates, Inc. (B&A), on behalf of La Chalupa, LLC, conducted an archeological survey within the proposed Chalupa Wind Project - Arroyo Colorado Transmission Line Crossing (the Project), in Cameron County, Texas. The proposed overhead transmission line would be approximately 10.4 miles in length, 1.7 miles of which would be located on property owned by the Port of Harlingen Authority, a political subdivision of State, triggering compliance with the Antiquities Code of Texas and associated regulations outlined in 13 TAC 26. The project would also require a federal permit to be issued under the auspices of Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899, which will require compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and associated regulations outlined in 36 CFR 800. The project area consists of approximately 20.45 total acres. Twelve trenches were excavated in connection with this investigation. No archeological sites were identified. Based on these findings, B&A recommends that the proposed project proceed to completion without further archeological work. Curation of records generated in connection with this survey occurred at the University of Texas San Antonio’s Center for Archaeological Research.
