On September 18 and 19, 2018, archeologists from aci consulting conducted an intensive pedestrian survey prior to construction of the Canyon West Water Supply Line in Travis and Burnet Counties, Texas. The project consists of the approximately 4.55-mile raw water transmission main from the existing South Central Water Company (SCWC) raw water storage tank located along Haynie Flat Road. The proposed alignment will be constructed within a 15-foot permanent easement and also utilize an additional 15-foot temporary construction easement during construction. Therefore, the APE of the proposed alignment is approximately 30 feet wide along the entire 4.55-mile length of the alignment for a total of approximately 16.6 acres (6.72 hectares).
The investigation was conducted in accordance with Council of Texas Archeologists (CTA) and Texas Historical Commission (THC) and in compliance with Texas Administrative Code (13 TAC 26) under Permit No. 8514. The project is also conducted in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, for any additional compliance for impacts to US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) regulated waters.
Two sites, 41TV539 and 41TV2501, were previously recorded within the APE and were revisited during this investigation. The site are not recommended as eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Properties (NRHP) or a State Antiquities Landmark (SAL), and the portions of the sites within the APE would not contribute to the sites’ eligibility were they to later be determined eligible. The investigation did not result in the location of any new archeological sites, historic structures, or additional historic properties. Based on these results, no further archeological work is recommended. Records from this investigation will be curated at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory. Julie Shipp served as Principal Investigator.
