A Cultural Resource Survey of the Reach 9 Completion, Granite Reef Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project

Summary

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 the completion of Reach 9. The project area extends about 1 mile from the Agua Fria River Siphon east to the New River Siphon.

This report describes the results of the archaeological survey conducted along the eastern end of Reach 9 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 terraces between the Agua Fria and New rivers.

One field locus and four isolated artifacts were recorded during the Reach 9 completion survey. The field locus was designated as AZ T:4:53 (ASU) and is of indeterminate age, although it may represent an Archaic occupation.
