Abstract : This report presents the results of Phase I cultural resources survey and archeological inventory of the proposed Schooner Bayou Bankline Stabilization Project corridor in Vermilion Parish, Louisiana. Fieldwork for this project was completed during January of 2000 on behalf of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, by R. Christopher Goodwin & Associates, Inc., pursuant to Contract DACW29-97-D-0018, Delivery Order 25. The proposed project involves the construction of a rock dike along the left-descending bank of the North Prong of Schooner Bayou to prevent erosion. The current document contains the results of a detailed examination of the proposed Area of Potential Effect, which encompassed an area that totaled approximately 6.3 ha (15.5 ac) in extent and measured 2.1 km (1.3 mi) in length and 30 m (98.4 ft) in width. As a result of this investigation, the entire Area of Potential Effect (APE) was subjected to both pedestrian survey and systematic subsurface testing. This project was undertaken in accordance with the procedures outlined in the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended; the Archaeological and Historic Preservation Act of 1974; the Archaeological Resources Protection Act of 1979, as amended; and Title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 60-66 and 800, as appropriate. Survey and excavation efforts abided by all pertinent state guidelines and included issues addressed in Louisiana's Comprehensive Archeological Plan (Smith et. al. 1983). Despite this intensive field effort, no evidence of intact cultural deposits was observed and no cultural material was recovered during survey of the project corridor. In addition, no historic period standing structures were identified within, or immediately adjacent to, the proposed Area of Potential Effect. No additional testing of the proposed Schooner Bayou Bankline Stabilization corridor is recommended.
