Cultural Resources Survey of a Proposed Natural Gas Pipeline for the Proposed American Gypsum Company
Editor(s): Jennifer Salo
"Archaeologists and historians with Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted an intensive cultural resources survey of the route of a proposed natural gas pipeline in Georgetown County, South Carolina. The Carolina Gas Transmission Corporation proposes to build a natural gas pipeline from its existing pipeline to the proposed American Gypsum plant on Pennyroyal Road. The proposed natural gas pipeline will provide natural gas service to the proposed industrial facility.
The current survey employed systematic shovel testing to examine the entire project corridor. We encountered no evidence of any cultural materials in any shovel tests or surface exposures within the route of the proposed natural gas line. There are no historic architectural resources or historic properties near the route of the proposed natural gas line. As currently planned, the construction and operation of the proposed natural gas pipeline will not affect any historic properties. Further management consideration of cultural resources is not warranted."
