Key Findings

  • Most of the study area has been cleared of archaeological concerns.
  • A number of areas retain moderate to high archaeological potential, including areas with the potential to uncover various 19th century structures and indigenous artifacts.
  • Where archaeological potential is present and disturbance is anticipated, further archaeological assessment(s) will be completed. The assessment(s) may include test pit surveys and deeply buried investigative techniques, such as mechanical topsoil removal and/or mechanical trenching.
