Abstract : Archeological survey was conducted in two areas within Item M-178.0 to 173.2-R. A total of 104.75 acres were surveyed. A total of 65 auger tests and four shovel tests were excavated. Auger tests to a depth of 2 m spaced at 50 m intervals were excavated along the toe of levee between Levee Station 0+00 and 50+68 within the Lafourche Basin Levee district. In addition, auger tests to a depth of 2 m were excavated at 35 m intervals within a proposed borrow area located within the boundaries of the Atchafalaya Basin Levee District between Levee Stations 6168+00 and 6188+00. No archeological sites were located in either of the two survey areas. No further work is recommended.
