Final: The Eastern Mining Area Project Coolidge To Hayden Segment Data Recovery: Hohokam Agriculture in the Middle and Upper Gila River Valley of Pinal County, Arizona

Editor(s): David E. Purcell; Jean H. Ballagh

Year: 1997

Summary

SWCA conducted limited data recovery at 13 sites crossed by the Coolidge to Hayden segment of the larger Eastern Mining Area (EMA) 115kV Transmission Line system in east-central Arizona. The Coolidge to Hayden segment generally follows a west-to-east alignment from Coolidge, Pinal County, to Hayden in Gila County, which roughly parallels the course of the Gila River. Salt River Project (SRP) owns the transmission line system, which was constructed to serve the mining communities of the Superstition and Pinal Mountains. Salt River Project recognized that future maintenance and operation activities along the segments of the EMA system may impact sites. Because the EMA was built many years before the passage of state and federal laws that mandate inventory and protection of archaeological sites, SRP voluntarily initiated a management program to identify sites within the EMA rights-of-way, and conduct data recovery at those sites that cannot be avoided by the proposed maintenance and operations activities. SWCA conducted a complete survey of the EMA system between October 1993 and February 1994 (Ahlstrom, Motsinger, and Roberts 1996).
