A surface survey of the northwest corner of the lot revealed an eight-pier structure that is believed to be a water tower, based on oral reports. One Jose Noriega brick was positively identified in the southwest pier, which dates to Arcadia Mill’s years of operation.
The crew worked hard to clear the vegetation covering the brick features. Once cleared, mapping began on individual piers. It is unclear at this time if these structural remains will be excavated this summer. However, mapping the surface remnants is the best way to record them for future purposes of excavation and analysis.
