MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - The federal Bureau of Reclamation has hired an archaeologist to determine if there’s anything of historic value at Klamath Junction, which was exposed this summer as Emigrant Lake was drawn down by the drought.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1shFxXE) there’s a gas station, store and other buildings from the 1920s that were inundated in 1960 when the reservoir was doubled in size.

The archaeologist, Jeff LaLande of Ashland, says it’s unlikely there’s anything there of historical significance.

The bureau is required to analyze and protect historic and cultural resources on its property.
