Cultural resource inventories on Federal lands are required specifically under the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966 (as amended; PL 96-515, 1980). Cultural resource inventories were conducted for the Cache la Poudre Hydroelectric Project basin extension study in eastern Larimer County, Colorado. Twenty-nine sites were recorded. Of this number, 10 are prehistoric and 20 are historic. Prehistoric sites consist of open camps and lithic scatters with and without hearths and stone circles, and rock shelters with deeply stratified deposits. They span the Paleo-Indian through Late Prehistoric stages. Historic sites include homesteads, miscellaneous structures and structural remnants, bridges, canals, a mine, and a recently abandoned water filtration facility. They date from the late 19th to late 20th century. Eighteen isolated finds were also recorded, of which eight are prehistoric and 10 are historic.
