Texas Historical Commission
On September 9, and December 14, 2017, and January 11, 2018, archeologists from aci consulting conducted a cultural resources survey for the proposed Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority (BCRUA) Nameless Electrical Alignment project between the Nameless substation and the proposed Phase 2 pump station location between Nameless and Volente in northern Travis County, Texas. The Nameless Electrical Alignment is part of a larger project being conducted by the BCRUA who is developing a deep water intake structure to ensure the availability of a reliable water supply for the BCRUA Regional Water System. The Area of Potential Effect (APE) for the Antiquities Permit consists of the 2.69-mile sections of the alignment, with a 20-foot buffer, resulting in approximately 4.67 acres.
The project will be funded through the BCRUA, thus the work was conducted in compliance with Texas Administrative Code (13 TAC 26) under Texas Antiquities Code permit number 8055, as well as Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. The survey 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.
