Finding Aid, Coal River Basin Channel Rehabilitation Study 1974


This collection is referred to as "Coal River Basin Channel Rehabilitation Study 1974.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folders, and the box labels. The extent of this collection is a quarter (0.25) of a linear inch.

The documents were originally housed in an acidic folder within an acid-free box and were in good condition. The documents were originally housed in reverse chronological order, and were reorganized by chronological order. Metal contaminants and folds were found throughout the documents. Various staples were removed from the documents using a microspatula. The staple holes and any wrinkles or creases in the documents were smoothed using a bone tool. The documents were slightly discolored due to aging. The maps were originally folded and were flattened using an iron. A minor tear on the edge of one of the maps was mended with acid-free mending tissue tape.

The collection consists of four pieces of correspondence, dating from June 1974 to December 1974. One of the letters (scanned asset 2069-0001) included four oversized maps showing project details and site locations. A note at the bottom of the letter reads: “4 Incl / Maps as.” Each of the four maps is labeled with corresponding “Incl” numbers one to four. The four correspondence documents, including the oversized maps, were assigned to the Administrative

Records folder (1/1). The oversized maps were removed to oversized storage, scanned, and assigned separate scanned asset numbers for tracking purposes. Copies of the maps were printed on acid-free paper and inserted into the original location within the correspondence.
