Kyrene Data Recovery Preliminary Field Report (For the North Half of the Pole Yard Locus)


This document is the preliminary report on archaeological data recovery at a portion of the Hohokam village of Los Guanacos (AZ U:9:116 [ASM]). Salt River Project (SRP) is proposing to construct a new generating station adjacent to the existing Kyrene Generating Station in Tempe, Arizona. Prior to construction of the generating station, SRP implemented an archaeological data- recovery project within the proposed project area (Figure 1) and contracted with SWCA, Inc., Environmental Consultants (SWCA) to conduct the investigations. The Environmental Protection Agency is the lead federal agency responsible for assessing the impacts to historic properties under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act since Salt River Project will apply for a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. The data recovery program being conducted at the site is done in accordance with the Memorandum of Agreement for this project.

Construction of the generating station is scheduled to begin in the northern portion of the Pole Yard before expanding into the remainder of the project area. Therefore, this document reports on data recovery in the Pole Yard, north of the railroad tracks, prior to completion of excavations in the rest of the project area and prior to completion of analysis of data. SWCA began archaeological investigation on December 8, 2000, and, completed excavations in the northern portion of the Pole Yard on January 26, 2001.
