A Cultural Resources Survey of the Proposed Salt River Project Central Support Complex Parcel in Tempe, Maricopa County, Arizona
Author(s): Scott L. Fedick
On February 27, 1986, Scott L. Fedick of Archaeological Research Services, Inc. (ARS), performed a cultural resources survey at the proposed location of the Salt River Project Central Support Complex.
The survey was undertaken at the request of Salt River Project in order to determine if cultural resources, which may include prehistoric or historic archaeological sites or objects, historically or architecturally significant structures or buildings, were present which could be affected by proposed land use actions.
At the time of survey, most of the subject parcel had been freshly disced in preparation for cultivation. An approximately 200 ft wide strip of land on the west side of, and parallel to, the Kyrene Canal had been cultivated in the recent past and was partially overgrown with a thin cover of various disturbed-soil weeds.
Soils of the survey area are well drained loams developing on an essentially level alluvial fan of the Salt River.
