The pertinent authorities for this responsibility include the Antiquities Act of 1906, the Historic Sites Act of 1935, the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 as amended including the National Historic Preservation Act Amendments of 1980, the Reservoir Salvage Act of 1960 as amended by the Archeological and Historical Preservation Act of 1974, Executive Order 11593, the Archeological Resources Protection Act of 1979, the National Environmental Policy Act, and ER 1105-2-50.

Seckinger, Jr., at two potential disposal areas for the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint Waterway (ACF). The areas surveyed are illustrated in Figure 1.
