The City of Pateros, located in Okanogan County, is conducting a feasibility study to build a new reservoir, located along the north edge of the city. The area of potential effect (APE) covers approximately 1.0 acre.
Pre-field research revealed 18 previously recorded cultural resources and one archaeological district within 1.0 mi (1.6 km) of the Project Area. Eleven sites are located south of the Columbia River, in Douglas County, and none are located within the Project Area.
The fieldwork included inspection techniques to identify both surface and subsurface archaeological resources. No pre-contact or historic-era materials or features were observed during the pedestrian survey or subsurface investigations of the Pateros New Reservoir Site Location Feasibility Project. Plateau recommended the proposed undertaking will result in No Historic Properties Affected, and no further archaeological investigations are recommended prior to, or during, execution of this project.
