2011. An Archeological Inventory and Assessment of 14 Archeological Sites In the Everett Area,Boston Township, Summit County, Ohio
This report documents the planning process for identifying and protecting archeological resources within Everett in Cuyahoga Valley National Park with regard to a proposed sewer system to be developed to serve numerous historic structures in the crossroads community. It also describes the components, content, and context of 14 archeological sites that occur on the properties to be served by the new sewer system. The sewer system would be a unified, single system connected to the City of Akron sewer system that would replace numerous leach fields, holding tanks, and associated sewer components that currently serve the structures individually, or in small groups. As a result of intensive planning efforts, and the narrow, linear character of the project, the new system has been designed to avoid any adverse impacts to the archeological sites that occur on the properties. The new system's components, consisting primarily of main sewer lines, connectors to each property, and a few lift or pump stations, were placed within disturbed road-rights-of way, other areas grossly disturbed by various historic and modern activities, and/or in areas devoid of archeological resources. The report summarizes how the planning for site avoidance was accomplished and presents clear evidence in support of the National Park Service's (NPS) finding of "No Adverse Effect" for the project.
