Final Report of Class III Cultural Resource Survey for the SCIDD Florence Canal, Phase I: Station 45+00 to 1224+00, Pinal County, Arizona: Report

Summary

As authorized under the Arizona Water Settlements Act of 2004, the San Carlos and Irrigation Drainage District (SCIDD) is undertaking a 10-year rehabilitation project of its irrigation system. SCIDD is the non-Indian irrigation component of the San Carlos Irrigation Project (SCIP), which provides irrigation water to the communities of Florence, Coolidge, and Casa Grande in Pinal County, Arizona. The Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office (Reclamation) directed Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) to conduct survey of 22 miles (498 acres) of the preferred alternative alignment in 2011.

Archaeological survey resulted in the identification of 24 cultural resources. Nine archaeological sites were recommended eligible for inclusion on the National Register, 10 were recommended not eligible, and 3 required additional investigations to evaluate their eligibility. ACS also documented two standing historic structures on private property. Two sites listed on the State of Arizona Inventory (Arizona State Prison Captain of the Guards House [131-I] and 1920s farmstead [IHCRS 82-3]) were not relocated during survey.

This report presents the results of the survey.
