Abstract : A total of 76 sites (67 archeological, 3 historical, and 6 paleontological) were recorded and investigated in and around the project area. No sites were found at the Bateman Pumping Station. Ten sites (9 archeological and 1 paleontological) were found along the pipeline. The 9 archeological sites were investigated by general collecting. Fifty-one sites (47 archeological, 2 historical, and 2 paleontological) were found in the Truscott Reservoir area. Of the 47 archeological sites, 36 were general-collected, 4 were control-collected, and 7 were tested. Of the 2 historical sites, 1 (a stone-walled half-dugout) was excavated and 1 (a rock fence) was merely recorded. Fifteen sites (11 archeological, 1 historical, and 3 paleontological) outside of the project area were visited. General collections were made at the 11 archeological sites. The 56 archeological sites within the project area are generally small surficial scatters of lithic debitage and firecracked rocks on sheetwashed bedrock, with occasional boiling stone dumps or sandstone slab hearths, and a limited number and variety of stone tools.
