Abstract : Earth Search, Inc., was contracted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District (NODCOE), to conduct Phase I cultural resources survey within the proposed West Bank Vicinity of New Orleans, Louisiana, Hurricane Protection Project area. Fieldwork was conducted between September 14, 1999, and September 23, 1999. One hundred and forty-four bucket auger tests were excavated along 51 pedestrian transects during field investigations within the approximately 22-acre project area. No historic or prehistoric cultural resources were discovered in the project area, but three surface scatters of very recent materials were noted during survey, as well as a structure less than 50 years of age. Since no archeological sites or historic properties were discovered within the project area, ESI recommends no further work.
