Preliminary Case Report, Concerning Cultural Resources Along the Granite Reef Aqueduct and Granite Reef Aqueduct Transmission System, Central Arizona Project

Year: 1978

Summary

This report only contains the Appendices A - J.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is requesting proposals for supplementary inventory survey and mitigation of cultural resources to be impacted by construction of the Granite Reef Aqueduct and Granite Reef Aqueduct Transmission System. This aqueduct and transmission system are features of the Central Arizona Project (CAP), which is a multipurpose water resource development and management project designed to provide supplemental water to central and southern Arizona and western New Mexico (see enclosed CAP brochure). A detailed description of the project can be found in the Central Arizona Project Final Environmental Statement (U.S. Department of the Interior 1972). Separate feature- specific final environmental statements have also been prepared for the Granite Reef Aqueduct (U.S. Department of the Interior 1974), the associated Havasu Intake Channel, Havasu Pumping Plant and Buckskin Mountains Tunnel (U.S. Department of the Interior 1973), and the Granite Reef Aqueduct Transmission System (U.S. Department of the Interior 1975). Construction of these features has been initiated.

As detailed design data are being developed, some changes are being made in the feasibility alinements of both the aqueduct and transmission system. Because of these design changes impact of construction will, in some areas, occur beyond the initial 600-foot (200-meter) wide alinement originally surveyed for cultural resources. Other impact areas, such as borrow and spoil areas, access roads, and flood dike detention basins are also being identified. Reclamation is seeking to negotiate a 3 year, cost reimbursable, "on-call" contract for the required inventory survey and execution of any mitigation plans developed on the basis of information collected during the surveys.
