Archaeological Investigations: Arizona Nuclear Power Project, BLM and Private Land, Maricopa County, Arizona: Final Report for Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station Waste Water Conveyance System

Author(s): Pat H. Stein

Year: 1977


This report attempts to document, assess, and develop a plan for conserving archaeological resources along the waste water conveyance system for the Arizona Nuclear Power Project. The paper describes 13 sites which were discovered during an intensive survey of the proposed facility, evaluates these sites in relation to the archaeological resource base of the Lower Gila River Valley, and recommends procedures for mitigating the adverse effects of construction on these cultural remains. The survey afforded an excellent opportunity to study a major Hohokam area which has received little systematic attention, to date, by professional archaeologists.
