This proposed project is the construction of a 150-foot self-support communication tower in Walla Walla County, Washington. The tower will be placed adjacent to an existing 120-foot communication tower. The area of potential effect (APE) is in a 50 x 50 foot leased area.
Pre-field research revealed no previously recorded cultural resources within 1.0 mi (1.6 km) of the Project Area. The DAHP’s predictive model places the Project Area within an area of moderate risk for encountering cultural resources.
The fieldwork included inspection techniques to identify surface archaeological resources. No cultural material was observed during the survey of the proposed Wanser Communication Tower Project Area and no further archaeological investigations are recommended prior to execution of this project. There are no National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) structures within a 0.5-mi (0.8-km) radius of the Project Area and as such the proposed cell tower will have no adverse direct or visual effect.
Location: Walla Walla County, Washington
