Abstract:

A cultural resources survey was conducted within the Davis Pond project area, St. Charles Parish, LA. The work included an intensive pedestrian survey with 20 m lane spacing within all of the construction corridor that was not inundated. Shovel tests were excavated at 20 and 50 m intervals in high and low probability areas, respectively. One historic site 16SC73 was recorded within the construction corridor. It was recommended not eligible for the NRHP because of disturbance and lack of research potential. One historic site 16SC74 located near but not within the construction corridor was recommended as potentially eligible. One prehistoric site 16SC76, also located near but not within the construction corridor, was recommended as not eligible because of disturbance-and lack of research potential. Excavations were also conducted at 16SC27 Pump Canal site which is highly significant. Stratified deposits are present, and these are associated with the Troyville, Coles Creek, and Plaquemine cultures.
