The East Osceola Street Drain Extension project comprises a narrow strip of land about 12 m wide by 132 m long and is located in Reed City, Michigan. The parcel was investigated by means of a systematic and intensive program of shovel testing that established both the undisturbed nature of subsurface deposits as suggested in the project description provided by the MOOT and the absence of potentially significant cultural resources. On the basis of the archaeological survey, together with a comprehensive review of the relevant maps, documents, and literature, it can be recommended that the project be permitted to proceed as planned.
