An Archaeological Survey of Two Proposed Channel Cuts in Pool 5 of the Upper Mississippi River,
CORPS OF ENGINEERS ST PAUL MN ST PAUL DISTRICT
Pagination or Media Count:
An archaeological survey was conducted on two small channel cutting sites in Pool 5 of the Upper Mississippi River. Test units yielded no archaeological materials, aboriginal or historic, in the proposed right-of-way. Evidence indicating repeated flooding of Island 42 and lesser flooding of the Kruger Slough area also lessens their potential as archaeological sites. Thus, the author concludes that the cutting of the channels will not constitute a threat to the archaeology of the area.
