maintain the maximum total weight points at 160.

In rating alternative sites, Federal agencies shall consider each of tlie criteria and assign points within tlie limits established
in the FPPA rule. Sites most suitable for protection under these criteria will receive the highest total scores, and sites least
suitable, the lowest scores.

Part VII: In computing the Total Site Assessment Points , where a State or local site assessment is used and the total
maximum number of points is other than 160, adjust the site assessment points to abase of 160. Example: if tlie Site
Assessment maximum is 200 points; and alternative Site A is rated 180 points:

Total Points assigned to Site A = 180x 160 = 144 points for Site A
Maximum points possible 200

RE: STPS 430-1(5)1 Canyon Ferry Road Control No. 4480

Dear Jon,

Our records show that site 24LC1062 was left unresolved on a consultation with the
BOR, and not as you say in your letter. Since the BOR may own the irrigation system
components, it is important that we hear from them before w^e comment on the other
irrigation properties listed in this report. We concur with your findings of eligibility on
sites 24LC1688, 24LC1689, and 24LC1690 in that they are determined to be not eUgible
to the register.

If you have any questions or concerns about the points presented, please call me at (406)
444-0388. ^

Subject: Notification of Consultation - Canyon Ferry Road Highway Project STPS

430-1(5)1, Lewis and Clark County, Montana MTAO Project No. HV-02-029

Dear Mark:

The Montana Area Office (MTAO) of the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) has been
consulted in regards to the proposed Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) Project
titled: Canyon Ferry Road Highway Project STPS 430-1(5)1, Lewis and Clark County, Montana.

I have reviewed the report titled: A Cultural Resource Inventory (Rossillon, 2001) and have
found it adequate in its review of cultural resources. This report was provided your office by Jon
Axline, Historian of the MDT Environmental Services section. In his cover letter to your office
dated January 28, 2002, he states: "...RTI recorded eight irrigation ditches within the APE
(24LC1691-1698). The ditches are covered under the terms of the MDT's irrigation ditch
programmatic agreement and no determinations of eligibility for National Register purposes are
required."

The above statement is in error. Various portions of the Helena Valley Irrigation Unit
(24L1C 1 062) are impacted. This includes the main canal and latends. As stated on page 23 of
the above-mentioned report, these features are portions of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's
(BOR) Helena Valley Unit. As you are aware. Reclamation features are not covered by the
MDT programmatic agreement as the BOR is not a signatory. Determinations of eligibility for
National Register purposes are therefore required.

■■;: C'.:



upon review of the documentation found in A Cultural Resource Inventory (Rossillon, 2001) we
feel that the proposed Canyon Ferry Road Highway Project STPS 430-1(5)1 does not alter any
of the characteristics of the Helena Valley Irrigation Unit is such a way as to diminish the
qualifying characteristics that would make it eligible for the National Register. We feel that a
finding of No historic properties affected would be appropriate.

We are providing a copy of this letter to Jon Axline, MDT so that he may consult with your
office in regards to this project.

If you have any questions, please contact me at (406) 247-7329 or by e-mail at

Subject: Copy of Letter to SHPO on Canyon Ferry Road Highway Project STPS 430-1(5)1

Dear Jon;



Enclosed is a copy of a letter I sent to the SHPO in regards to the above-mentioned project. As
you know. Bureau of Reclamation Systems are not covered by the programmatic agreement
(PA). Since the Helena Valley Irrigation Unit (24LC 1 062) is impacted, a determination of
eligibility or a finding of no historic properly affected is required.

The enclosed letter states that the Montana Area Office feels that the proposed project will not
impact 24LC 1 062 in such a way as to make it ineligible for the National Register. We
recommend that you request a finding of No historic properties affected from the SHPO.
When you receive concurrence from his office, please send us a copy.

Please keep in mind as the project progresses to have MDT continue to coordinate the project
with Mike Petronis (engineering) and Sue Stiles (realty). They may be reached at
(406) 247-7312, and (406) 247-7316, respectively.



Sincerely,






Enclosure

RE: STPS 430-1(5)1 Canyon Ferry Road (Addendum) Control No. 4480
Dear Jon,

We can concur that the Charles Mann Farmstead (24LC1762) is not eUgible for the
Register. We are a little unclear as to what you want on the Helena Valley Irrigation
Unit (24LC1062). After reviewing the letter from Bill Vincent dated 10 May 2002, we
would concur that due to the design of the project you will not affect it, but since we
have no additional information on the site, it will remain unresolved as to eUgibihty.

If you have any questions about any points that I have made, you may call me at (406)
444-0388.
