dc.description.abstractDuring February, 1975, the Center for Archaeological Research at The University of Texas at San Antonio carried out an archaeo-logical survey of the Upper Cibolo Creek Watershed in Kendall County, Texas. The Soil Conservation Service of the United States Department of Agriculture proposes to construct four floodwater retarding structures on upper Cibolo Creek and three of its tributaries (Ranger Creek, Frederick Creek, and Deep Hollow Creek) and the purpose of the archaeological survey was to provide an assessment of the historic and prehistoric cultural resources in these areas. The field work was conducted under the terms of a contract (AG-48-scs-02539) with the Soil Conservation Service, in which five major survey objectives were outlined: 1. Determine if archaeological resources exist within the area committed to installation of each floodwater retarding structure. 2. If resources are found, record, identify, and appraise the significance of resources including apparent eligibility for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. 3. Evaluate the impact of project installation on each resource. 4. Provide recommendations for mitigation of adverse impacts anticipated. 5. Provide estimate of costs required for mitigation (salvage, protection, etc.).
