A Cultural Resources Survey of 7.5 Acres for the Expansion and Rehabilitation of Wetlands Within the Arlington Wildlife Area, Maricopa County, Arizona
Author(s): David A. Bild
Salt River Project (SRP) requested that Logan Simpson Design Inc. (LSD) perform a Class III cultural resources survey of a portion of the Arlington Wildlife Area (AWA), Maricopa County, Arizona. The project area is located on Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD) and private land on the west side of the Gila River. The project area includes a 33-ft-wide and 2,560-ft-long corridor centered on the main access road through private land and a 27.10-acre AGFD parcel that measures 2,360 ft north-south and 500 ft east-west. SRP is working coorperatively with AGFD on expanding and rehabilitating the wetlands for Yuma clapper rail habitat at AWA. Additionally, AGFD plans to minimally improve the main access road to AWA. The project area was partially surveyed to determine whether any cultural resources--prehistoric or historic archaeological sites or objects and potentially significant historic buildings or structures--exist that could be negatively affected by the proposed project. The project area is densely vegetated and it was not possible to access or survey a majority of the project area. A total of 7.5 acres of the project area was systematically surveyed.
Becuase the project is located on state land under the jurisdication of AGFD, the cultural resources survey was completed in compliance with the requirements set forth in ARS § 41-861 et. Seq., the Arizona State Historic Preservation Act. An evaluation of Traditional Cultural Properties was not undertaken as part of this investigation.
