Abstract:

Archeological survey was conducted in two areas within Item M-178.0 to 173.2-R. A total of 104.75 acres were surveyed. A total of 65 auger tests and four shovel tests were excavated. Auger tests to a depth of 2 m spaced at 50 m intervals were excavated along the toe of levee between Levee Station 000 and 5068 within the Lafourche Basin Levee district. In addition, auger tests to a depth of 2 m were excavated at 35 m intervals within a proposed borrow area located within the boundaries of the Atchafalaya Basin Levee District between Levee Stations 616800 and 618800. No archeological sites were located in either of the two survey areas. No further work is recommended.
