Abstract

The City of McKinney (City) is proposing to construct and maintain 2.2 kilometers (km; 1.4 miles [mi]) of 42- inch (in) water transmission line for the Redbud Pump Station Transmission Water Line Project (Project) located within the City of McKinney, in west-central Collin County, Texas (Appendix A, Figure 1). On behalf of the City, BGE, Inc. (BGE) conducted an intensive pedestrian survey augmented by shovel testing of the Project. Because the proposed project is being contracted by the City of McKinney, a political subdivision of the state of Texas, the project sponsor is required under the Texas Antiquities Code and the Texas Natural Resources Code Chapter 26 ‘Rules of Practice and Procedure for the Antiquities Code of Texas’ to obtain a Texas Antiquities Permit to perform cultural resources investigations to assess whether cultural resources are present that may rise to the level of significance of State Antiquities Landmark (SAL) status. The Texas Historical Commission (THC) has assigned Antiquities Permit number 8763 to the Project. Furthermore, project construction designs minimize impacts to Waters of the United States (WOTUS) crossed by the project, not meeting the minimum threshhold established under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) for the requirement of a Pre-Construction Notification (PCN) to the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
