The Central Arizona Project (CAP) was authorized by the Colorado River Basin Act (P.L. 90-537) in 1968. The following year, the Department of Anthropology at Arizona State University conducted a survey of the preliminary alignment of the Granite Reef Aqueduct and portions of the Salt-Gila Aqueduct for the Bureau of Reclamation under a National Park Service contract. The feasibility alignment extended from the Agua Fria River, southeast to the Gila River and was divided into eight sections: four on the Salt-Gila Aqueduct and four on the Granite Reef Aqueduct. Thirteen archaeological sites were identified, seven of which were recommended for further investigation. The results of this survey were included in the general programmatic environmental statements on the Central Arizona Project (U.S. Bureau of Reclamation 1972).
