In accordance with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and as as a requirement for a water pollution abatement plan submittal, Pape-Dawson geoscientists performed a geologic assessment of a 100-acre tract of land over the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone in Comal County. We uncovered a burned rock midden (ancient waste dump site) within the proposed footprint for a new high school. Our archaeologists worked with a geoarchaeologist in the field to interpret and sample the feature and surrounding soils. Additionally, Pape-Dawson’s geospatial team used their UAV-mounted LiDAR and imagery system to collect and provide elevation/topographic information on the site.
