Archaeological Investigations: Arizona Nuclear Power Project, Salt River Project, Bureau of Land Management, State, and Private Lands, Maricopa County, Arizona: Final Report for Palo Verde to Westwing Transmission System: An Intensive Survey of the Transmission Line and Access Roads

Summary

Seven archaeological sites and 26 isolated finds were recorded during a recent survey of the right-of-way and access roads for the proposed Palo Verde to Westwing Transmission Line. The sites ranged from Hohokam camps and special-purpose, limited activity sites to Anglo homesteads of the early 20th century. Other archaeological loci usually consisted of isolated sherds or a pot-drop, though one flaked tool and several pieces of ground stone were also found. The three prehistoric sites were located in the drainage of the Agua Fria River. The Hassayampa, Luke Wash and Centennial Wash drainages lacked prehistoric sites, but contained abundant isolated finds of prehistoric and historic origin. The following report evaluates these remains in relation to the regional archaeological resource base, and recommends measures for mitigating the adverse effects of construction on these remains.

Revised Report dated August 1977.
