    This report presents the results of a Phase I Marine Archeological Remote Sensing Survey of segments along the Southwest Pass of the Mississippi River, in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. These investigations were conducted in June 1999, by R. Christopher Goodwin & Associates, Inc. on behalf of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District (USACE-NOD). The study was undertaken to assist the USACE-NOD to satisfy its responsibilities under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, prior to undertaking proposed repair and maintenance activities along segments of the Southwest Pass. All aspects of the investigations were completed in accordance with the Scope-of-Work, and the Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation (Federal Register 48, No 190, 1983). The study area for this project consisted of three alternating blocks on the right and left descending banks of the river. Block One was located at river mile (RM) 14.4 - 15.2; Block Two encompassed the stretch between PM 11.3 and PM 12.5; and Block Three was located between PM 4.4 and PM 5.0. The objectives of this study were to identify specific targets that might represent significant submerged cultural resources within the project area, and provide the USACE-NOD with management recommendations for such resources. These objectives were met with a research design that combined background archival investigations and a marine archeological remote sensing survey. Background research and archival investigations indicated a moderate potential for encountering submerged historic cultural resources within the project reported within the area. A review of Louisiana archeological site files and relevant research reports documented only three historical building sites within a mile (1.6 km) radius of the project area; however, no sites are within the boundaries of the project area.
