Proposed Mead to Phoenix 500kV DC Transmission Line Project: Appendix D: Eastwing Substation and Westwing Substation Expansion: Archaeological Surveys

Author(s): Donald R. Keller; Donald E. Weaver, Jr.

Year: 1983

Summary

Two proposed substation site alternatives along the Agua Fria River were surveyed for archaeological resources by the Museum of Northern Arizona in December 1982. One small previously recorded potsherd concentration and a number of isolated artifacts were located within the Westwing area. An extensive Hohokam site was located within the Eastwing parcel, along with a segment of the historic Marinette Heading Canal. The Westwing substation alternative is strongly recommended in preference to the Eastwing alternative on archaeological and historical grounds.
