Summary

The Bureau of Reclamation, Arizona Projects Office directed the Nevada Archaeological Survey to conduct archaeological investigations at thirteen sites located along the proposed Mead-Davis-Parker 230kv Transmission Line Right-Of-Way #2, for the Central Arizona Project. The investigation was designed to evaluate each site for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The archaeological field work consisted of photography, mapping, and representative collections of artifacts, followed by laboratory analysis.

Based upon the field and laboratory analysis of the thirteen sites investigated, twelve sites were determined to consist of only surface deposits and were not recommended eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. One site, Oatman #8, was recommended eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion D. Avoidance of this site by construction crews was recommended.
