Historic Cultural Resources in Relation to the Central Arizona Water Control Study (1983)
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,...

Old Mobile (1MB94) Fort Louis, Mobile County, Alabama.
After an intensive remote sensing effort in 2005 failed to identify remains of Fort Louis at the Old Mobile site (1MB94), a large pit feature associated with one of the fort's bastions was found in that search area by hand excavation. This feature and adjacent units were excavated in 2007-2010.
Old Mobile (1MB94) Structure 02, Mobile County, Alabama.
Structure 2 at the Old Mobile site (1MB94) was first identified from systematic shovel testing that recovered blacksmithing slag from a concentrated area at the western edge of the townsite, adjacent to a swamp. Extensive excavations in 1990 uncovered a blacksmith's work area with forge and associated shelter, surrounded by a maze of fence footing trenches. Palisade-style fences are commonly associated with French colonial structures, but these fences were built and rebuilt frequently during the...
