Cultural Resources Survey for the SRP Southeast Valley Substation, Southeast of Queen Creek, Pinal County, Arizona

Author(s): Tiffany C. Clark

Year: 2007

Summary

This report presents the results of a Class III cultural resources survey of 64 acres of privately owned land southeast of the Town of Queen Creek, Pinal County, Arizona. The work was requested by Salt River Project (SRP) to determine if significant cultural resources were present within the surveyed property. SRP is currently acquiring the parcel and is planning to construct an electrical substation (Southeast Valley) on the property. The Southeast Valley (SEV) Substation will be part of the larger Pinal West to Southeast Valley/Browning extra-high voltage transmission line project. This line has recently received a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility from the Arizona Corporation Commission (Case No. 126). The larger line project is sponsored by a consortium of electrical utilities; however, the SEV Substation is sponsored and financed solely by SRP.

The cultural resources survey was conducted on 2 February 2007, by Dr. Tiffany Clark and Connie Darby of Desert Archaeology, Inc. Dr. Henderson served as Principal Investigator for the project. Although the surveyed land is private and no archaeological permit is required, Desert Archaeology does hold a current Arizona Antiquities blanket permit (Permit No. 2007-002bl) for conducting non-collection surveys within the state. One isolated occurrence of a prehistoric artifact was recorded by the survey, but no archaeological sites or other significant cultural resources were found within the project area.
