A Preliminary Report of Archaeological Sites Found Along the All American Pipeline Right-of-Way Between Ward Road in Maricopa County, Arizona, and a Point 95 Miles to the West
Between March 22 and August 14, 1985, archaeologists from the Cultural Resources Management Division of New Mexico State University (NMSU) conducted an archaeological clearance survey of all lands along the proposed Right-of-Way of the All American Pipeline Project (AAPL) between a point known as Ward Road in Maricopa County, Arizona and a point 95 miles to the west, at the Colorado River in La Paz County, Arizona. The All American Pipeline project is a construction project which involves building a 30 inch buried pipeline along the entire Right-of-Way. This pipeline is to carry heated crude oil from Santa Barbara, California, to McCamey, Texas. The survey was directed by David Batcho. Judy Brunson was field supervisor. Crew chiefs were Myles Miller, Bruce Boeke, Sandi Moriarty and Mark Sutton. The field crew consisted of 14 persons divided into three crews. The survey was carried out under BLM Cultural Resource Use Permit No. A-21082, and Arizona State Antiquities Permit No. 85-27.
In accordance with agreements between AAPL, BLM, and the Arizona SHPO, the following is a preliminary report concerning the cultural resources located by survey in the 95 mile corridor delineated above. These resources consist of 20 sites and 25 isolated occurrences. The corridor consists of an area 95 miles long. On public lands a corridor 200 feet wide was surveyed; the small sections of private lands had a 100 foot corridor examined. The La Paz pumping station site measures 660 feet square. The total surveyed area was approximately 2304 acres. This report contains an inventory of the resources found, a brief description of them and recommendations concerning their treatment. No in-depth analysis of the artifacts has as yet been done, nor have the sites been incorporated into a broad geographic context. A more thorough descriptive and analytic treatment of these data will be contained in the final report to be prepared upon the completion of the AAPL survey in Arizona.
Report revised September 20, 1985. Appendix B - Site Forms, and Appendix C - Isolated Occurance Forms are included in the secondary document.
