Trenching South of the Grand Canal at Pueblo Grande, Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona

Author(s): Holly S. DeMaagd

Year: 1993


At the request of Janice Cunningham of U.S. West Communication (US West), Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) performed subsurface testing along a proposed utility (fiber optic communication cable) right-of-way. The right-of-way will be located within the southern access road for the Grand Canal, which passes through Pueblo Grande Historic Landmark (Pueblo Grande). The canal is owned by the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and administered by the Salt River Project (SRP). Additional testing was conducted to the east of the monument on land administered by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). The purpose of the testing was to determine the depth of recent fill along the canal and to discover if cultural resources associated with Pueblo Grande would be impacted by the installation of the proposed communication cable. Three prehistoric features were exposed in the trenches located along the Grande Canal; no significant cultural remains were found in the two trenches excavated on ADOT property.
