Ceremony and Symbolism at Los Guanacos: Excavations at the Salt River Project Kyrene Generating Station


This report presents the results of the data recovery phase at the Hohokam village site of Guanacos (AZ U:9:116 [ASM]), as part of the proposed expansion of the existing Kyrene Generating Station in Tempe, Arizona, by the Salt River Project (SRP). Prior to construction of the generating station, SRP implemented an archaeological data recovery project within the proposed project area and contracted with SWCA, Inc., Environmental Consultants (SWCA) to conduct the investigations. The project was necessary to mitigate the impact of this construction to the site under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, in order for SRP to apply for National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit through the Environmental Protection Agency.
