This report presents the results of cultural resources survey undertaken in the linear borrow right-of-way adjacent to the north bank of the Inner Cataouatche Canal, a floodwall borrow area south of Bayou Segnette State Park, and a Reforestation Mitigation Site west of the state park. A total of approximately 183 acres were surveyed. Survey consisted of 20 m transects with shovel tests at 50 m intervals. No cultural resources were recorded within the project areas. An historic equipment complex, termed the Reforestation Tract site I 6JE26, was recorded outside the survey area. The site is a dredge boat located in the canal which forms the southern boundary of the Reforestation Mitigation Site. Investigations at 16JE26 were limited to photographic documentation and mapping. 16JE26 is potentially eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, pending further investigations. 61E26 will not be impacted by activities in the Reforestation Mitigation Site. No further work is recommended at this time. If future plans will impact 16JE26, further investigations are required to establish its integrity and significance.
