Abstract:

Archaeological investigations were conducted at the dredged material disposal site to be used in conjunction with the rehabilitation of Lock and Dam No. 20, located near Meyer, IL. Two archaeological sites within the project area were evaluated in terms of the National Register of Historic Places, NRHP eligibility criteria. The archaeological site located in the southern part of the project area 11-A-68 contains minimally disturbed features from Early Woodland, Late Woodland, and historic-period occupations. This site is likely to contain important information on local and regional research problems and, thus, meets the NRHP eligibility criteria. The site located in the northeastern part of the project area 11-A-1040 contains Late Woodland remains but no undisturbed features were found. Thus, 11-A-1040 does not appear to be eligible for the NRHP. Disposal of dredged material can be designed to avoid adverse effects on 11-A-68 in three possible ways.
