Author(s): Richard Anduze; Janet Hagopian

Year: 1995

Summary

Salt River Project (SRP) proposes to reroute the Hubbell Ranch Road to bypass the mining activities at the SRP Fence Lake Coal Mine. SRP contracted with SWCA, Inc., Environmental Consultants (SWCA), to conduct a cultural resource survey for the Hubbell Ranch Road Bypass. The lead agency for the cultural resources is the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Las Cruces District, Socorro Resource Area.

The proposed bypass is on New Mexico State Trust Land leased by SRP. The proposed project area is located within the Upper Sonoran Life Zone with vegetation consisting of grasses, yarrow, rabbitbrush, forbs, and juniper. The elevation ranges between 6690 feet and 6720 feet (2039 and 2048 m) above mean sea level (amsl). The geology of the area is characterized by the late Cretaceous Moreno Hill Formation visible in the mesas and in the Quaternary alluvial deposits of the valley floor. The proposed bypass extends along the east side of a ridge down onto the valley floor. Approximately 25 percent of the ground surface is concealed by vegetation.
