From August 14 to September 27, 1979, archaeological survey and limited testing activities were conducted along a proposed sanitation sewer line easement on Walker Ranch in northeastern Bexar County. The sewer line, which is partially within the Walker Ranch National Register Historic District, was surveyed under contract with Harry Jewett Associates of San Antonio by the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). A total of 10 days was spent in the study area by the crew chief (Daniel R. Potter) and crew members (Elaine Brown and Paul Lukowski). Survey activities involved walking over the marked right-of-way and recording any cultural material that was visible. In addition, 21 small shovel tests and two l-m2 units were excavated along the right-of-way as a means of further evaluating archaeological remains in the area.
