An Archaeological Reconnaissance: Reroute of Copper Cities Line- A Proposed 1 1/4 Mile Reroute of the Frazier-to-Moonshine 115kV Transmission Line
Author(s): Alfred E. Dittert, Jr.
The proposed expansion of the Copper Cities tailing pond which is located immediately west of Pinal Creek will endanger a section of an existing Salt River Project transmission line. As a result, a change in the route of the line has become necessary. Both the tower locations and the access to the tower sites will involve lands not previously subjugated. The present investigations have been conducted to determine whether or not the new construction will impact archaeological resources.
A request for the reconnaissance was made by Mr. James P, Paulos, Environmental Analyst, Salt River Project. The investigations were conducted by Dr. Alfred E. Dittert, Jr. and Mr. Donald E. Weaver, Jr., Department of Anthropology, Arizona State University, on 10 February 1974. Transportation to the district and identification of the new alignment was provided by Mr. Jack A. Rossi of the Salt River Project.
