Abstract : This report presents the results of Phase I marine archeological remote sensing survey of the Barataria Pass Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site (ODMDS), in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. This investigation was conducted in November 1999, by R. Christopher Goodwin & Associates, Inc. on behalf of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District (USACE-NOD). This study was undertaken to assist the USACE-NOD in completing its responsibilities under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, prior to additional disposal of dredged material at this location. All aspects of the investigations were completed in accordance with the Scope-of-Work and the Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation (Federal Register 48, No. 190, 1983). The study area for this project consisted of a single survey block comprising the entire ODMDS, which is located at the southern entrance of the Barataria Pass. The survey block measures approximately 2,538.2 ft (773.7 m) x 19,776.5 ft. (6029.4 m), for a total of 1,152.4 acres with the study area. The objectives of this study were to identify specific targets that might represent significant submerged cultural resources within the project area, and to provide the USACE-NOD with management recommendations for such resources. These objectives were met through implementation of a research design that combined background archival investigations, marine archeological remote sensing survey, and technical report preparation. Background research and archival investigations indicated a low to moderate potential for encountering submerged historic cultural resources within the project area. A review of Louisiana archeological site files and relevant research reports documented no underwater sites within a mile (1.6 km) radius of the project area.
