Between February 6 and 12, 1986, Scott L. Fedick and Lyle M. Stone of Archaeological Research Services, Inc. (ARS), performed an archaeological survey of approximately 525 acres of Salt River Project (SRP) owned land in the vicinity of the SRP Administrative Offices complex in northwest Tempe, Maricopa County, Arizona. This study also involved background literature and archaeological site file research, and was undertaken at the request of the SRP Environmental Services Department in order to determine if important prehistoric or historic cultural resources were present which might be affected by future land use actions.
