GSRC personnel conducted an intensive cultural resources survey of a 60.2-acre parcel for the construction, operation, and maintenance of a permanent U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) Central Processing Center (CPC) facility located in northeast El Paso, El Paso County, Texas. No previously recorded archaeological sites or previously conducted archaeological investigations were found to overlap with the 60.2-acre survey parcel. No aboveground/architectural historic properties were noted within the 1.6-kilomter (1-mile) search radius of the 60.2-acre survey parcel. Fieldwork for the survey was conducted by the Principal Investigator and an archaeological technician over a 5-day period from February 24 to 28, 2020. The survey consisted of a non-collection intensive pedestrian archaeological survey supplemented with the excavation of shovel test pits (STPs) across the property. Twenty-seven isolated occurrences (IOs) were recorded, four of which consisted of prehistoric material and the remaining 23 consisting of historical material. None of the 27 IOs recorded are considered archaeological sites and are recommended not eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
