Abstract:

Cultural resources, those archaeological and historical properties determined to be of local, state, and national significance, are further recognized as nonrenewable resources which will be adversely impacted by deployment of the M-X system. As such, this technical report provides a working definition of cultural resources and reviews the historic preservation system and its applications for Air Force deployment of M-X in NevadaUtah and TexasNew Mexico. National Register properties, previous research, culture history, a review of known archaeological, historical and architectural properties, and the results of a 100 sq mi regional sample survey are provided. A section on impact assessment has been included which addresses impact significance, methodology, impacts of the M-X system and its alternatives, and tables which indicate estimated numbers of sites to be impacted by each alternative. This technical report also incorporates those public comments received during draft review.
