Monitoring of the Construction of the El Paso Natural Gas Pipeline Between Guadalupe Road and the Gila River Indian Community, Maricopa County, Arizona

Author(s): JoAnn E. Kisselburg; Sarah L. Horton

Year: 1990

Summary

Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) monitored the excavation of an 11.73 mi (18.88 km) long trench for the El Paso Natural Gas (EPNG) pipeline in the cities of Mesa, Tempe, and Chandler. Archaeological monitoring was recommended because of the likelihood of crosscutting prehistoric irrigation canals and the close proximity of Alta Vista, a prehistoric Hohokam habitation site (AZ U:9:48 (ASM)). The monitoring was conducted in order to document these cultural resources when they became exposed in the pipeline trench. A total of seven canals and six subsurface features were revealed in the pipeline trench. Two additional canals were identified in a sewer trench that was open at the time of the EPNG monitoring and that abutted the EPNG line.

The file includes a copies of Linda Scott Cumming's Pollen Analysis of Three Canals on the El Paso Natural Gas (EPNG) Project and Manuel R. Palacios-Fest's Report on Nonmarine Ostracodes from El Paso Natural Gas (EPNG) Project, Tempe, Arizona, as appendices.
