Cultural Resource Managment Report Upland and Shoreline Area- July 2013

This report presents the results of a Phase 1A cultural resource assessment for the remediation of SYW-12 Wetlands, an area of land at the southeast corner of Onondaga Lake in the City of Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York.. This study was undertaken to evaluate the potential for cultural resources within the project area in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the New York State Historic Preservation Act, and the professional standards of the New York Archaeological Council.

The area of potential effect for this project includes the parcel identified as SYW-12 Wetlands at the southeast corner of Onondaga Lake, bordered by Ley Creek to the north, Onondaga Lake to the north and northwest, and CSX Railroad to the east and south. This parcel covers approximately 17 acres within the City of Syracuse. Plans call for the remediation of SYW-12 Wetlands, although exact plans are indeterminate at the present time.

Detailed geomorphological analysis of soil borings and literature, review of project plans, and the archeological testing described in the Phase 1A Cultural Resource Assessment and Phase 1B Cultural Resource Survey have recommended that any additional excavations be monitored to document potential findings.
