Harrison Hub Fractionation Facility Cultural Resources
Harrison County, OH
Harrison Hub Fractionation Facility is a midstream facility that receives compressed liquid gas via pipeline that is later separated into different liquid gas products and these different products are stored in tanks and loaded onto trucks and rail cars. There were a series of important archaeological sites dating back to around 2300 years ago located within the footprint of the facility. EMH&T was able to negotiate the release of the remaining acreage for construction while simultaneously conducting extensive archaeological investigations on the significant archaeological sites. This allowed the construction schedule to move ahead on time. The sites were the first of their kind excavated in the county, demonstrating evidence of small groups of people roasting large amounts of roots and tubers gathered from some of the many wetlands on the site.
