City of Tieton Water System Improvement Project

Plateau Archaeological Investigations conducted cultural resource survey of several streets in the City of Tieton for the proposed water system improvements.  The project included over 3.8 miles of 8-inch and 12-inch water transmission line installed underneath existing roadways.  Ground disturbing activities included excavation of trenches reaching an approximate depth of 6.0 feet.  The project was partially funded by a grant from the Washington State Department of Community, Trade, and Economic Development, and must meet Executive Order 05-05 requirements regarding cultural resources.

The cultural resource survey provided no surface indications of Native American or Euroamerican cultural material or features within the proposed undertaking.
