A reconnaissance level cultural resources survey and program of testing and evaluation in the proposed alternate corridor of the DDT Contamination Study, Wheeler Resorvoir, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, resulted in the identification of 22 new sites and the testing of 26 previously recorded or newly discovered sites. The program of testing and evaluation was augmented by deep-testing to determine the areas geomorphic history and to assess the possible presence of buried sites. No buried sites were encountered however, the testing program and subsequent analysis identified occupation in the study corridor from the Paleo-Indian through the Historic Period. A predictive model of site location, based on environmental variables, was formulated and resulted in the determination of high, medium, and low probability areas for site occurrence. Author
