Abstract:

A literature and records search was conducted for the area to be affected by the proposed Pembilier Lake and Dam Flood Control Project. The area is along the Pembina River, near the Cavalier-Pembina county line, North Dakota. Investigations included the examination of books, articles, and reports pertinent to the study area as well as local and state records. A total of 18 archaeological and 6 historical sites were reported. Sixteen of the 18 archaeological sites are in danger of being adversely affected by construction of the proposed dam. Of the six historical sites, only two appear to be adversely affected by the dam construction. It is recommended that the area be surveyed and an intensive archaeological testing program be initiated for the study area to identify the valuable resources. Author
