An Archaeological Survey of a 2.3 Mile Long Right-of-Way for a Proposed 22 kV Distribution Line on the Tonto National Forest, Tonto Basin District, Gila County, Arizona
Author(s): Lyle M. Stone
On July 28, 1982, Lyle M. Stone of Archaeological Research Services, Inc. performed an archaeological survey of a 2.3 mile by 100 ft wide right-of-way for a proposed 22 kV distribution line on the Tonto National Forest near Punkin Center, Gila Country, Arizona. The proposed Salt River Project distribution line will serve an AT&T relay station in the vicinity of Four Peaks.
This survey was requested by Salt River Project in order to determine if important cultural resources (prehistoric or historic archaeological sites, historically or architecturally significant structures or buildings) were located within the project area which might be affected by the proposed distribution line construction. The proposed line will be constructed along an existing telephone line alignment.
This survey was performed under the conditions and authority of a Special Use Permit issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, to Archaeological Research Services, Inc. in October 1981. Accordingly, the appropriate Forest Supervisor and District Ranger were notified in writing in advance of the survey.
This file includes an early report on the area resources by Mary Raring-Hart, a special use application, schematic drawings, and numerous pieces of correspondence among the U. S. Forest Service, Salt River Project, Lyle M. Stone, and Arizona State University.
