Pursuant to an agreement between the City of El Dorado, Professional Engineering Consultants, P.A., and Wichita State University for the performance of a cultural resources investigation of the area of impact of the City's planned wastewater treatment plant expansion, David T. Hughes led faculty and student volunteers in pedestrian surveys and subsurface investigations from March 8 to April 4, 2005. Five previously recorded sites were relocated and three new sites identified. Preliminary assessment confirmed surface expressions of Archaic components previously described (Padgett and Blakeslee 1982). Subsurface investigations indicate that sites 14BU1532, 14BU1531, and 14BU519 have buried components at depths from 3 5 cm to a little more than 1 meter below ground surface that can yield data supplementary to the previous evaluations. The recommendation is that excavations to determine the horizontal and vertical extent of these sites and to recover data valuable to completing the Archaic sequence in the Walnut River Valley be conducted.
