Abstract : Heartfield, Price and Greene, Inc. of Monroe, Louisiana was contracted by the Memphis District of the United States Army Corps of Engineers under contract number DACW66-83-C-0030, Item R-703, to conduct a background, archival and literature search, and an intensive cultural resources survey of the project area of proposed Mississippi River levee berm stabilization in the vicinity of Porter Lake, Crittenden County. The purpose of this project is to prevent further seepage through the levee during periods of flooding. The area surveyed included a 91.5 meter (300 foot) top bank right-of-way as measured perpendicular to and riverside from the centerline of the levee between station 180/0+100 to station 181/2+50. Heartfield, Price and Greene, Inc. began background research for the project on February 1, 1983. On-the-ground survey was conducted between February 18 and February 19, 1983. Background investigations continued throughout the on-the-ground survey.
