KVA North and South – Phase I Archaeological Investigations

KVA North and South – Phase I Archaeological Investigations Overview

Kanawha County, WV

GAI conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of the Northern and Southern Corridor Improvements Projects as part of the Appalachian Power Company’s multiyear Kanawha Valley Area Transmission Reinforcement Program. These surveys addressed electric generation facility requirements, necessary transmission system upgrades, modification of existing segments, and the construction of new overhead electric transmission lines. Crews conducted systematic visual inspections, shovel test pits, and subsurface testing for each project area. In partnership with American Electric Power, GAI successfully avoided negatively impacting six cemeteries and four prehistoric sites across the project area.
