Summary

Since May, 1975, the Museum of Northern Arizona, Department of Anthropology (hereafter "Museum"), has conducted archaeological investigations for the Salt River Project - Coronado Generating Station, Coronado-Dinosaur Transmission System, North End Project. This work, supported by contractual agreement, has consisted of an intensive archaeological survey of the proposed right-of-way, from Sta. 0+00 - Sta. 3874+21, and a realignment around Sta. 1748+30 to Sta. 2375+50, and the analysis and report preparation associated with the data collected during the fieldwork. The Museum has used the necessary permits to conduct these investigations. This report details the Museum's involvement in this project, provides a statement for management purposes for Salt River Project, discusses the field methods employed, examines the regional archaeological conditions, including the cultural resources present along the transmission line, broadly outlines proposals for mitigations, and makes clearance recommendations based on a regional mitigation approach, as well as on the potential for avoiding archaeological sites.

This document includes contributions by Dorothy M. Goddard, Patricia H. Stein, Jeannette Dickerson, and Claudia Chang.
