Year of Publication

A cultural resources survey was conducted on a 58 ha (140 ac) tract of gently rolling farmland that is to be used as a spray irrigation wastewater treatment site for the town of Ocilla, Irwin County, Georgia. Nine prehistoric sites and 19 isolated artifact occurrences were discovered. Two of the sites date to the Early Archaic period, and it is possible that most or all of the others, lithic scatters of varying sizes, also date to this period. The sites do not appear to meet the criteria for eligibility to the National Register of Historic Places. The proposed project will have little affect on these sites, and no mitigation is recommended.
