An Archaeological Survey Along the NEXRAD Utilities Access Lines to Williams Air Force Base, Maricopa County, Arizona
Author(s): Robert Haynes-Peterson
This report details the results of a cultural resources assessment of approximately 0.75 miles of trenchline and adjacent above ground powerlines, constructed for access to the NEXRAD facility. The survey was conducted at the request of SRI International to assess the impact construction had on previously recorded sites in the area, as recommended by the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).
The project area is located along Sossaman Road, north of Germann Road, along the boundaries of Sections 5 and 6, T2S, R7E (Figure 1). The utility trench begins about 60 ft (18 m) east of the Sossaman Road - Germann Road intersection on the north side of Germann Road (Figure 2). The trench then continues along the west side of Sossaman road to the NEXRAD weather station, approximately 0.75 miles to the north. The trench was dug about 3 ft (1 m) deep and between 6 inches and 18 inches wide. In addition, nine utility power poles were removed, and 16 were erected, to realign to powerline along the west side of Sossaman Road. Construction was conducted in July of 1993.
Evidence of a previously recorded site - AZ U:10:21 (ASU) - and eight isolated occurrences (IOs) were recorded. The IOs are probably also associated with the previously recorded site - part of the Germann site complex. Site AZ U:10:21 (ASU) is considered eligible for inclusion to the National Register of Historic Places. Impact to the site by the current project is considered minimal and no further archaeological work is recommended, unless additional construction is proposed.
