An archaeological testing program was conducted at the proposed new lagoon site/borrow pit in Dead Horse Ranch State Park. The project was undertaken by SWCA, Inc., Environmental Consultants, under contract to Entranco Engineers, Inc. and was sponsored by the Arizona Department of Transportation and Arizona State Parks. The area tested was 33,910 m² (8.4 ac.). Twenty-eight systematically located backhoe trenches and two judgmentally placed backhoe trenches were excavated. Sixteen artifacts were observed and collected, three from surface and 13 from subsurface contexts. No significant cultural resources were observed, and cultural resource clearance is recommended for the proposed undertaking.
