Archaeological Inventory Survey of Pole Branch and Southwest Interceptors, Aiken County, South Carolina

Author(s): Debra K. Martin; Lesley M. Drucker

Year: 1987


"As a part of its contract activities, CAS conducted historical research, examined state archaeological site records and environmental data, and consulted with state personnel to determine the number and types of historical properties and Cultural features which have been previously documented in the study area (S. C. Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology; S. C. Department of Archives and History; University of South Carolina Map Library). The results of this literature search indicated that seven previously recorded archaeological sites (38AK12, 38AK33, 38AH80, 38AK81, 38AK276, 38AK277, and 38AK482) occur within 1.0 km of the study area. No significant structural sites were recorded within the immediate construction area."

General Note: "Inventory survey of the proposed Pole Branch Interceptor system identified five historic properties which may be affected by construction of wastewater facilities (Table 1). These properties were found to contain insufficient archaeological value to be considered historically significant, and therefore are considered not eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (36 CFR 60.4). One standing structure (3BAK493) located immediately adjacent to the construction corridor is architecturally significant and may be eligible for the National Register for its association with postbellum industrial development of the North Augusta community. Construction is expected to have no impact on the structural integrity of this building. Application of the criteria of effect to these historic properties (36 CFR 800.5) indicates that the project will have no effect on sites 38AK488. 38AK489, 38AK490, 38AK491, and 38AK492. Based on the restriction of construction activities to an existing road right of-way, the project is expected to have no adverse effect on 38AK493. This being the case, no further archaeological or historical investigation of the cultural resources identified by the inventory survey is necessary."
