Abstract : The West Water Street Site is a multi-component, stratified prehistoric archaeological site located on the West Branch of the Susquehanna River along Water Street in the town of Lock Haven, Clinton County, Pennsylvania. Phase III data recovery excavations were conducted at this site by Kise, Franks, and Straw, Inc.

This work was undertaken in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. The purpose of this work was to mitigate the adverse affects of the construction of a levee on significant archaeological resources at the West Water Street Site.
