Georgia State University student, Hazel Sanchez, water-screens buckets of sediment from the excavation unit looking for artifacts. The sediment from the unit was highly saturated with water and would not easily pass through the screens, therefore the team had to transport the sediment to the dock and use water to remove the sediment.
