This report summarizes the archaeological survey of the proposed Hamilton, 201 Waste-Water Treatment Facility in Harris County, Georgia. The field work was conducted on February 16, 1979. The survey area consisted of approximately one acre of the proposed construction site and approximately 180 meters of proposed right-of-way for an access road and pipe corridor.

The survey area is located within the Southern part of the Piedmont physiographic provence (Figure 1). Geologically this area is characterized by crystalline and semi-crystalline, igneous and metamorphic rocks. Prominent features of this area are Pine and Oak Mountains. These monadnocks reach elevations of 1200 feet above sea level and are oriented in an east-west direction. The study area is at the western terminus of Oak Mountain (Figure 2).
