Cultural Resource Survey Results from Reach 7 of the Granite Reef Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project
Author(s): Don E. Simonis
Under contract with the Bureau of Reclamation, the Office of Cultural Resource Management (OCRM), Department of Anthropology, Arizona State University, completed an archaeological survey of Reach 7, the Hassayampa, Jackrabbit, and Centennial Wash Siphons, and two borrow areas. Reach 7 of the Granite Reef Aqueduct extends about 11 miles from the Hassayampa-Wickenburg Road west to the Hassayampa River.
This report describes the results of the archaeological surveys conducted along Reach 7 of the Granite Reef Aqueduct. Results suggest that the project area was part of a secondary resource zone, an area which apparently did not support a permanent population, but was utilized intermittently, probably on a seasonal basis. The aqueduct traverses the lower bajada slopes of the Belmont Mountains and continues across the Hassayampa Valley.
Thirty-five field loci and over 100 isolated artifacts were recorded during the Reach 7 survey. Based on relative density of cultural material dispersion, the majority of the field loci were grouped into five sites: AZ T:5:2 (ASU); AZ T:5:3 (ASU); AZ T:5:4 (ASU); AZ T:6:1 (ASU); and AZ T:6:2 (ASU). Most of the sites are of indeterminate age, although they are likely associated with the Hohokam, Patayan, or Yuman traditions.
