6A--The Malakoff News, Thursday, June 2, 1983 By FRANK SOPUCH CORSICANA -- Archaeologists from Southern Methodist University and engineers of the Tarrant County Water Control and Improvement District Number One are working side by side in rural Navarre County to uncover prehistoric Indian sites before the area is flooded by the Richiand-Chambers Reservoir. The proposed Richland-Chambers Reservoir, along with Cedar Creek supply a dependable yield of 187 million gallons of water per day. Flowage rights will eventually be bought or leased up to an elevation of 320 feet with a spillway providing protection to the dam from a 100-year frequency flood. Water from the Richiand-Chambers reservoir will be piped to treatment ants in Tarrant County where it will blended with water from other TCWCID reservoirs and distributed to Reservoir in Henderson County, will customers. comprise TCWCID's East Texas Water The project is being undertaken Supply System and will provide the entirely with local funds having no district's customers in Fort Worth with financin orovided from federal or an adequate supply of high quality local soui:ces for the reservoir's water well into the next century, estimated $342 million pricetag. When completed in the latter part of In 1980 the TCWCID awarded SMU a 1986, the 44,000-acre reservoir will have $2.25 million contract to conduct ar- a capacity of 1386,866 acre feet and will cheological studies in the Richland- O a a The Texas Department of Health, Public Health Region 7 Office an- nounced plans today for the con- tintmtion of a series of monthly im- munization clinics for all children needing immunizations. The next clinic will be conducted June 2 at the Texas Department of Health at 734 Corsicans Street in Athens. Cl/nic hours will be from 1-3:30 o.m. Immunizations to be offered include mumps, measles, rubella, oral polio, DTP, and tetanus. Parents are reminded to bring their child's immunization record. The tetanus-diptheria vaccine is also available for adults. Chambers area before the dam is built. The contract, for a five-year study, is reportedly the largest in the univer- sity's history. Archaeologists from SMU, using Space Age detection equipment and computer mapping techniques have unearthed what may be the remnants of an Indian tribe that populated Central Texas in the first century A.D. To date excavators have unearthed parts of 16 skeletons and other artifacts including pottery, arrowheads, shells, rock chips and animal bones. The archeological dig is believed to be only the second in the nation to be conducted with a number of high-tech remote sensing devices, including a proton magnetometer and an elec- tromagnetic conductivity sensor. Holes that prehistoric people might have dug in the ground, like fire pits and post holes for their homes, create minute electromagnetic disturbances below the soil, The machines, which are hand-held versions of the remote sensing satellites used to find mineral deposits on Earth from hundreds of miles out in space, are able to detect electric currents as weak as a millionth of a volt. Readings from the devices are fed into a computer, which produces a map of the area showing the location of subsurface disturbances. From that map, archaeologists are able to decide the best places to dig for remains. When an artifact is found, ar- chaeologists record what it is and where it was discovered. This in- formation is also fed into the computer, allowing it to produce a detailed map of what kinds of artifacts were found in various locations. SMU has a laboratory in Corsicana where 12 workers number each ar- tifact, record its size and weight, and then enter the information into the computer. The entire archaeological project here employs more than 40 people and the work, according to SMU officials, is part of a new kind of archaeology that has resulted from the environmental legislation of the 1960s and 1970s. Many federal and state laws now require that major construction projects, like highways or dams, must be preceded by a thorough study of the area's archaeological history. Planning for the new reservoir, which is located in both Freestone and Navarro Counties, began around 1954. The sites under archaeological in- vestigation include a burial pit in Freestone County and another area several miles to the north in Navarro County. Dr. Mark Raab, archaeology professor at SMU and project director, said the burial pits discovered so far show that Indians in Texas observed death rituals, much like Indians in the eastern part of the country. Curiously, the archaeologists also have found evidence of another Indian culture that existed near the pits several centuries later than the earlier tribe, sometime between J Ill A.D. "We hope that what we will be of use to future," explained Dr. to take as much guesswort we can, although there probables that remain."
