Abstract : A phase I cultural resources investigation was conducted for the Neche flood control project in Pembina County, North Dakota, in May, 1986. The project components include a channel cutoff, a borrow area, two new levee sections, and two interior drainage ponds. The study utilized surface inspection, cutbank profiles, subsurface shovel probes, and soil corings, to locate cultural materials. As a result of the inventory, no prehistoric or significant historic sites were recorded. The shovel probes were also negative, indicating a low potential for buried cultural resources. No further archaeological work is recommended at these locations, with one exception. It is suggested that landowner permission be obtained to survey two acres to which Powers was denied access.
