Author(s): David R. Hart

Year: 2000


The Class III cultural resources survey was requested by the Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District in order to assess the nature and extent of possible cultural resources present within the proposed project area. The project area is the intended location of a satellite switchyard for the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station. This parcel of land encompasses 240 acres south of Elliot Road, between the 500,000 volt North Gila and Kyrene transmission lines [Figure 1], The survey was conducted by Northland Research, Inc., between November 30th and December 2nd, 1999. There have been no previous archaeological investigations on this parcel of land, nor have any sites been previously recorded within the project area. However, a concurrent cultural resources survey conducted by Entranco Engineers, Inc., overlapped with the southwestern portions of the project area. The area of overlap corresponds with the portion of the land owned by SEMPRA.
