DOCUMENT Full-Text Andrew I. Duff.

Between April 15 and June 14, 1993, Archaeological Research Services, Inc. performed a cultural resources survey of State Route 88 (the Apache Trail).

Therefore, the Arizona Department of Transportation requested that a 200 foot wide right-of-way be surveyed for the entire project length unless clearly marked property boundaries or other right-of-way indications were present. The 17.5 mile long survey...

The Eastern Mining Area transmission line was first built to carry hydroelectric power generated at Roosevelt Dam, the United States Bureau of Reclamation’s first large scale work, into Phoenix. It soon expanded to serve the area mines the southern portion of Gila County. The sale of power to these mines provided revenue to expand the Salt River Project’s hydroelectric system and furnish Salt River Valley farmers with electricity.


Historic Cultural Resources in Relation to the Central Arizona Water Control Study (1983)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Lyle M. Stone. James E. Ayres.

Flooding along the Salt, Gila, Verde, and Agua Fria Rivers in February and March of 1978 resulted in extensive damage to property in Central Arizona and in the disruption of ground transportation and commerce in the greater Phoenix area. Major flooding also occurred along these rivers in December, 1978 and February, 1980. The recognition of this flooding problem, and of requirements for the regulatory storage of Central Arizona Project (CAP) water, prompted the U.S. Department of the Interior,...
