General Note: "A total of two historic sites were discovered during the archaeological survey associated with this project. The site 38AK500 represents a hydroelectric power station encompassing about 2.5 acres. It dates to the first decade of the twentieth century and is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. A small amount of new right of way will be required in the immediate proximity of the site (Figure 3). The area of the archaeological site including all of the above ground structures is outside the proposed right of way...The cemetery, 38AK501, is a potentially eligible National Register site located about 225 feet south of the proposed construction limits. It will not be directly affected by the proposed undertaking...It is believed that these measures will be sufficient to avoid encroachment upon these two sites during the construction phase."
