Archaeological Testing at the Salt River Project Rittenhouse Substation, Queen Creek, Arizona

Author(s): T. Kathleen Henderson

Year: 2005

Summary

This report presents the results of archaeological testing by Desert Archaeology, Inc., at the Rittenhouse Substation, owned and operated by the Salt River Project (SRP) in Queen Creek, Arizona. The work was requested by SRP to determine if significant archaeological remains were present on the property that would be affected by planned expansion of the electrical substation. Fieldwork began on 1 February 2005, and was completed in seven person-days, on 3 February 2005. A total of 203 m (666 ft) of trench was excavated, providing a 2 percent sample of the SRP property. Only a single, insignificant buried feature was found—a charcoal lens or possible surface of indeterminate age. The findings of this project indicate no additional archaeological efforts are warranted; a recommendation is made that construction activities proceed as planned.
