Abstract : In 1986 an archaeological survey of 148 ac and National Register testing of 18 sites within the corps easements was conducted in the Downstream Stockton lake project area. A total of five newly recorded sites were located in the survey including 23CE423, 23CE424, 23CE425, 23CE426 and 23CE427. The 18 sites tested included four of these newly recorded sites 23CE423, 23CE425, 23CE426, 23CE427 and 14 previously recorded sites 23CE52, 23CE226, 23CE227, 23CE229, 23CE230, 23CE238, 23CE239, 23CE242, 23CE245, 23CE253, 23CE258, 23CE262, 23CE263 and 23CE409. Based on the results of the test investigations 23CE226, 23CE228, 23cEA09, 23CE426 and 23CE427 are recommended to be eligible for the National Register. Sites 23CE239, 23CE242 and 23CE245, 23CE262, 23CE263 and 23CE423 are not considered eligible for the National Register. Only small portions of sites 23CE52, 23CE227, 23CE229, 23CE23O, 23CE253, 23CE258 and 23CE425 are located on U.S. Army Corps of Engineer slough easements where the test investigations were conducted. Although the portions of these sites within the corps easements do not contain significant deposits, significant deposits could be present outside the easement boundary. Further testing of the portions of the sites outside the easement would be necessary to assess their National Register eligibility. (AN)
