Final Data Recovery And Burial Removal At Pueblo Grande (AZ U:9:1(ASM)): Unit 15, The Former Maricopa Counry Sheriff's Substation, Washington And 48th Streets, Phoenix, Arizona
In a development plan proposed in 1999, two areas were to be excavated below grade for a building foundation and a runoff detention basin and the rest of the parcel was to be resurfaced at grade. Because this parcel is immediately east of the Iarge Hohokam village site of Pueblo Grande (AZ U:9:1(ASM)), a two-phase testing program determined the distribution of intact prehistoric cultural remains and established that mortuary features with human remains would be impacted if the existing development plans were followed, requiring compliance with ARS 41-865. Subsequently, an initial data recovery and burial removal program was implemented to excavate all prehistoric cultural features and human burials inside the area of the building foundation and all such features and burials located elsewhere in the lot that were within 2 ft of the existing ground surface. Finally, the demolition of existing structures in the lot and the construction of a facility for preventing underground toxic gas accumulation were monitored to assure that no prehistoric features were disturbed by those activities. The development was never completed, and instead the parcel was sold to Lauth Property Group, LLC, who requested that the remaining archaeologically sensitive areas on the parcel be subjected to data recovery and burial removal. This document presents the results of both the initial data recovery and burial removal and the later work completed for the new owner of the parcel.
