Abstract:

The community of Sawyer is located in Ward County, North Dakota, approximately 16 miles downstream of Minot. This city is currently affected by flooding of the Souris River. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to upgrade and improve the emergency levee system within Sawyer to provide permanent flood control protection. A total of four modification areas to the Sawyer flood control program were inventoried during the current project. This report provides a summary of previous archaeological and historical studies in the project areas, describes the regional environment, gives a theoretical and methodological overview, describes the field methods, presents a detailed description of the inventory areas and results, and recommends future work necessary as the result of the project findings.
