Summary

During a thunderstorm on Thursday, July 26, 2001, a major lightning strike hit near Big Spring causing a major power outage to the maintenance buildings and other structures to the south of the Big Spring discharge branch. Although that line was replaced, it must have broken or damaged the ancillary power cable that supplies power to the Big Spring Pavilion. The Big Spring Developed Area is listed on The National Register of Historic Places as a district including all the structures constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The new power supply cable will be buried at least four feet deep in a trench excavated with large backhoes. Thus, the potential existed for major adverse impacts to occur if the trench passed across any prehistoric or historic archeological site. On Monday, March 18,2002, James E. Price conducted a pedestrian survey of the direct impact zone of the proposed buried cable.
