A Cultural Resources Survey of the Proposed Salt River Project 92nd Street Substation, Salt River Pima and Maricopa Indian Community, Maricopa County, Arizona

Author(s): David H. Greenwald

Year: 1991

Summary

On December 27, 1990, SWCA, Inc. Environmental Consultants, conducted an archaeological survey on the Salt River Pima and Maricopa Indian Reservation for Salt River Project for a proposed substation. Approximately 2.07 acres located in a modern field were surveyed. Isolated artifacts consisted of a single piece of heat-altered rock and five pieces of mafic igneous flaked debitage. Archival investigations revealed that the project area is located in the extreme northwestern portion of Pueblo Ultimo (AZ U:9:11 ASU), a large Hohokam village site that dates primarily to the Classic period. Archival records also indicate that a prehistoric canal system extends through the immediate project area, although no surface indications of canals could be observed during the field survey. Because the project area is located within the defined boundaries of Pueblo Ultimo, archaeological clearance cannot be recommended for the proposed undertaking. Further investigations are recommended in the form of systematic backhoe trenching in order to assess the presence of subsurface remains and to evaluate impacts upon those remains that may result from the proposed undertaking.
