A cultural resources inspection was conducted of four alternative buildings for a General Services Administration GSA Corps of Engineers COE facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on July 11, 1991. The work was undertaken by Geo- Marine, Inc. for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, in order to meet obligations regarding the protection of significant properties under the National Historical Preservation Act of 1966, as amended PL-96-515, the Archeological and Historical Preservation Act of 1974, as amended PL-93-291, the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and Executive Order 11593, Protection and Enhancement of the Cultural Environment. Background research was conducted in which both historic and archeological sources were examined in order to determine the nature of the cultural resources which might be present in the project area. Fieldwork involved a walkover and surface examination of the site or general site area, if the site itself could not be specifically located. Extensive notes were taken on soil type, surface topography, drainage pattern, vegetation cover, surface and drainage modification, contextural integrity, and subsurface stratigraphy. In spite of these efforts, no cultural remains were located on any of the four sites, although it is believed that there is some likelihood of buried cultural remains being present on two of the four sites.
