An intensive Cultural Resource Survey was undertaken within the boundaries of the proposed Downstream Channel Improvements. The work undertaken was part of the Merced County Streams Project, which is a flood control project undertaken by the Corps of Engineers. The entire project would consist of the enlargement of Burns and Bear dams, the construction of Haystack and Castle dams, and downstream channel improvements. The purpose of the project is to temporarily store runoff behind ungated dams to prevent downstream flooding. There would be no permanent pools. The cultural resources survey was conducted in compliance with Executive Order 11593, and Public Law 93-291 which requires that all cultural resources which may be impacted by the project be located, inventoried, and evaluated for eligibility to the National Register of Historic Places.
