Summary

Cultural resources investigations were conducted for the West Belle Pass Restoration Project, located in extreme lower Lafoiirche Parish, Louisiana. The investigations involved archaeological, historical and geological background research, pedestrian survey and site testing. The survey covered an area of approximately 2,188 acres, and either discovered or revisited five prehistoric archaeological sites. Three of the sites, 16 LF 82, 16 LF 83, and 16 LF 84, were deemed not significant and no further work is recommended at them. Two sites, 16 LF 149 and 16 LF 250, were determined to be potentially eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Construction activities associated with the restoration project will not adversely impact these two sites such that no additional work is considered necessary.
