Abstract: "Atkins was contracted by Oncor Electric Delivery Company to conduct a cultural resources survey of the proposed Bluff Creek to Brown Transmission Line Project. Fieldwork on accessible properties began on July 15, 2010, and the majority of the pedestrian survey was completed by December 1, 2010. The line extends across Taylor, Runnels, Coleman, and Brown counties, Texas, for a distance of approximately 137.6 kilometers (km) 85.5 miles). The right of way (ROW) occupies an area of approximately 1,658.2 acres (671,0 hectares). Also surveyed were roughly 26 linear km (16 miles) of previous alignments, which have since been superseded by reroutes; these cover an area of 310 acres (125 hectares). Twenty-six tower locations within floodplains were monitored during construction, with no cultural materials observed within them."

"The survey revisited 3 previously recorded prehistoric sites (41TA23, 41TA26, and 41TA269) and defined 43 newly recorded sites (41TA285-41RN265, and 41CN288-41CN298)-27 prehistoric, 12 historic, and 4 with both prehistoric and historic components. Site 41TA288, 41Rn247, 41RN263, and 41CN292, whose boundaries have been fully defined, do not appear eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The eligibility of each of the other 42 sites cannot be determined at this time as they extend beyond the limits of the current project area; however, based on the recorded portions of these sites, no additional cultural resource investigations are recommended within the ROW."
