A series of four mechanically dug trenches were excavated and analyzed with regard to subsurface cultural content along the channeled creekbed at the mouth of Telegraph Canyon in Chula Vista, California. The first phase of testing was conducted on September 7 and 8, 1978. Analysis of the test trenches was concluded and the trenches refilled on September 14, 1978. Approximately 64 work hours were expended during both field and laboratory tasks of this archaeological test. Results of the subsurface testing were negative. No cultural deposits of either the historic or prehistoric past were encountered, although some historic debris i.e. metal bolts, rusting cable, and pipelines were noted. Material information with regard to this testing and subsequent analysis are provided in Sections 5.0 and 6.0 of this report.
