Bishop Museum, conducted several archaeological projects in connection with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Kaneohe-Kailua Flood-Control Project. The objectives of the successive archaeological projects were simply the identification and preliminary evaluation of archaeological resources present within the project area more intensive recording and testing of specific sites, to evaluate significance and to determine potential for yeilding important information through any recommended subsequent work and complete salvage of the single prehistoric site, as the appropriate mitigation for the adverse effect of sire destruction by planned dam construction. In most instances, a project scope of work was based on recommendations derived from the findings of the previous project.
