To assess the potential archeological impact by the proposed Double Branch Interceptor Sewer project for the City of West Columbia, the Institute of Archeology and Anthropology conducted a week long survey of the approximate four mile long sewerline right-of-way. The survey consisted of a pedestrian transect of the corridor to inspect exposed ground surfaces and a limited shovel testing program. Three sites were located adjacent to the right-of-way. If these sites are avoided during the construction phase, they should experience no adverse impacts. An archeological clearance is recommended for the fifty-foot right-of-way.
