The Roger Mills expansion project: An archaeological investigation
The Roger Mills Expansion Project: An Archaeological investigation for Northern Natural Gas Company, a division of ENRON Gas Pipeline Operation Co., in Gray, Roberts, and Wheeler Counties, Texas, Roger Mills County, Oklahoma. Wichita, Kan.: WSU Dept. of Anthropology. November 1, 1990. -- 97 pages.,
Archaeological investigations of a 150 foot right of way in the Texas Panhandle and Oklahoma produced information on 13 previously unrecorded sites and isolates in Texas and 31 sites and isolates in Oklahoma. The majority are indeterminate prehistoric sites with only three attributable to Woodland or Late Prehistoric (Neolndian) occupations. Construction of the pipeline, subject to the recommendations in this report for avoidance, will result in no effect to any of these sites and there will be no loss to the archaeological or cultural resource base from installation of the pipeline as discussed in this investigation and as shown on maps provided by ENRON on June 15, 1990.
The relevant State and Federal agencies have been consulted throughout this investigation and their records show no previously recorded archaeological, historical, or cultural resources sites within the project boundaries. Intensive archaeological survey identified two potentially significant archaeological sites within the proposed ·right of way, and the preferred mitigation alternative, avoidance of impact, has been accepted as the appropriate strategy by ENRON acting for Northern Natural Gas Co. ·
