Wirth Associates Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station Transmission System, Salt River Project, Maricopa County, Arizona: Final Report for Archaeological Impact Study: Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station Routing Alternate to Westwing Receiving Station

Author(s): Richard A. Brook

Year: 1975

Summary

Wirth Associates contracted with the Museum of Northern Arizona to conduct an archaeological impact study of a proposed Salt River Project Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station Routing Alternate to Westwing Receiving Station. This study delineates areas with three levels of potential site occurence for the project area, and investigates potential effects on the cultural resources of the alternative corridors proposed by Salt River Project. A short data gathering phase, prior to field work, compiled information from site inventory files at the Museum of Northern Arizona and the State Parks Department. During the field investigation phase one of the routes was non-randomly sampled. This report details the scope of the archaeological study, including earlier Museum investigations, describes the typological framework and regional context, and assesses the research potential of the existing archaeological resource base. The proposed corridor segments and their potential sensitivity on the resource base is described, and general discussion for routing alternatives are made.
