The Central Arizona Project Historic Preservation Program: Conserving the Past While Building for the Future

Summary

On July 15, 1983, the chairman of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) ratified a programmatic memorandum of agreement among the Arizona and New Mexico State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPOs), the Bureau of Reclamation, and the ACHP. The subject of that agreement was the construction of the Central Arizona Project (CAP) and its impact upon historic properties. That agreement was negotiated in compliance with Section 2(b) of Executive Order 11593, "Protection and Enhancement of the Cultural Environment," and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. A copy of the agreement is attached as an appendix to this report. Because it was designed to cover all aspects of the CAP that remain to be constructed, the agreement was programmatic. As a result, it stipulated that Reclamation prepare a comprehensive, project-wide plan for historic preservation. This document constitutes that plan. It is designed to be a tool that will insure adequate consideration of historic properties as the CAP is completed and lead to appropriate treatment of significant historic resources that lie within the path of construction.
