The Dinosaur: Archaeological Investigations Within the Gila River Valley for the Salt River Project's Pinal Central to Dinosaur 500 kV Transmission Line, Pinal County, Arizona
Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District (SRP) plans to construct an 88-mile-long 500-kV extra-high voltage transmission line linking the Pinal West, Santa Rosa, Pinal Central, Abel, and Dinosaur substations (ACC CEC Case No. 126). This report presents the results of Phase I data recovery (extent testing) and Phase II data recovery within a 40-m- (130-ft-) wide corridor at seven sites located on State Trust Land administered by the Arizona State Land Department (ASLD) (ASLD ROW No. 16-112288) and at seven sites and nine loci on the Gila River floodplain that are on privately owned lands between Pinal Central and Dinosaur. The sites are situated in north-central Pinal County east of the town of Queen Creek, east of Coolidge; and southeast and south-south of Coolidge.
Phase I data recovery investigations were undertaken at 14 sites: AZ AA:2:304 (ASM); AZ AA:2:305 (ASM), AZ AA:3:281, AZ U:10:20 (ASM), AZ U:14:417 (ASM), AZ U:15:1 (ASM)/Adamsville, AZ U:15:61 (ASM)/Frogtown, AZ U:15:97 (ASM), AZ U:15:264 (ASM), AZ U:15:276 (ASM), AZ U:15:296 (ASM), AZ U:15:432 (ASM), AZ U:15:559 (ASM), and AZ U:15:560 (ASM). The sites were previously recommended eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) (Henderson et al. 2009) and the investigations were undertaken to comply with the Arizona Antiquities Act, the State Historic Preservation Act, and as required by the Arizona Corporation Commission Certificate of Environmental Compatibility. Fieldwork methods followed those outlined in the treatment plans (Phase I and Phase II data recovery) developed to mitigate impacts to the sites (Lindeman 2009; Lindeman et al. 2009). Michael Foster, Ph.D. served as Principal Investigator, and field work was directed by J. Scott Courtright.
