Catalog Inventory, Delta County, Cooper Lake 1970

Part of the Cooper Lake 1970 project

Year: 1970


Field specimen catalog sheets for the Cooper Lake 1970 investigations conducted in Delta County.

The Cooper Lake investigations consisted of a two month archaeological site survey of the area to be included within the proposed limits of the Cooper Reservoir, Delta and Hopkins counties, northeast Texas. One hundred and five prehistoric sites were recorded during the survey, 85 of which will be directly affected by construction of the dam and reservoir. Upon completion of the survey limited testing was conducted at several sites.

Cooper Reservoir will flood approximately 34,000 acres, with the top of the flood control pool at elevation 446.2 m.s.l. The main dam site is to be located 4.5 miles southeast of Cooper, Texas (U.S. Corps of Engineers, 1970). The area to be affected by the reservoir includes the floodplain area north and south of the South Sulfur River, approximately 16 miles long (straight line) by 1½ to 4½ miles wide.
