Lake Meredith inundates dozens (probably hundreds) of Antelope Creek sites, only a few of which were carefully studied prior to the completion of Sanford Dam in 1965. As a result of federal laws passed soon after the lake was built, a similar reservoir project today would result in years of concentrated archeological investigation to mitigate the loss of information. This photo by Chris Lintz was taken in the 1980s when the reservoir was full, a rare occurrence these days.
