Research Design for the Investigation of Cultural Resources Along the Granite Reef Aqueduct and Transmission Lines, Central Arizona Project
Under contract with the Bureau of Reclamation, the Office of Cultural Resource Management (OCRM), Department of Anthropology, Arizona State University, completed a general research design for completion of archaeological survey and mitigation of cultural resources that would be impacted by the construction of the Granite Reef Aqueduct for the Central Arizona Project.
Because it was not possible to specify the extent of the work to be completed at the initiation of the project, general guidelines were set up for the scheduling of individual cultural resource study tasks which corresponded to specific construction units or reaches. Each task was a self contained subunit of the overall project, initiated by the approval of a budget and scheduling proposal and summarized in an interim report. The subdivided structure of the "on-call" cultural resource study facilitated a multistage approach to the investigation.
The investigations culminated in the identification of a pattern of secondary resource zone exploitation in the desert areas between the river valleys. Researchers defined and described a secondary resource zone as an area which did not support a permanent population, but was utilized intermittently, probably on a seasonal basis, in the exploitation of wild plant and animal food resources by people whose primary subsistence was derived from a different zone.
