Abstract : This plan provides a tool which can be used to assist DARCOM and decision-makers at the Stratford Army Engine Plant (SAEP) (Conn.) in complying with existing regulations and procedures relating to historic preservation. This document summarizes data relating to the area's environmental history; cultural chronology; historic and modern ground disturbances; previous archeological surveys: etc. No significant archeological remains are known to exist on SAEP property. Although prehistoric sites have been reported in the general vicinity, analysis of prior land uses and ground disturbing activities suggests that there is little likelihood that previously undiscovered, intact, archeological resources exist on the upland portion of the SAEP site. Early prehistoric archeological sites, inundated by rising sea levels, may be present within the riparian rights area of the SAEP. No site or project or project specific archeological management activities are recommended for the SAEP at this time. It is recommended that procedures be established to (a) insure that potential archeological resources within the riparian rights area are identified prior to the start of construction in that area; and (b) deal with the emergency discovery of archeological resources in upland areas.
