Arizona Public Service Company, Pinnacle Peak to Ocotillo 230 kV Project, Assessment of Cultural Resources

Author(s): Richard W. Effland; Margerie Green

Year: 1984

Summary

Arizona Public Service Company (APS) proposes to rebuild an existing 230 kV transmission line which connects the Pinnacle Peak and Ocotillo substations. The portion of the line which currently lies within the Salt River channel north of Mesa and south of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC) needs to be relocated due to the extensive damage caused by severe flooding over the past ten years. APS proposes to move the right-of-way out of the channel and onto the north terrace above the river in order to avoid future flood damage. The new right-of-way would be on lands controlled by the SRPMIC. Only 1.9 miles of right-of-way will be changed (Figure 1). Archaeological Consulting Services (ACS) was contracted to perform an assessment of impacts to cultural resources that would be caused by the realignment. ACS is responsible for assessing potential impacts to historical and archaeological sites as well as possible effects upon Native Americans living in the vicinity of the new right-of-way.
