Class III Cultural Resources Survey Report: Carrel Interconnection Project, Pinal County, Arizona

Author(s): Beau J. Goldstein

Year: 2005


On October 20, 2004, Transcon Infrastructure, Inc. (Transcon) conducted a Class III (Intensive Field Inventory) cultural resources survey of approximately 28 acres for the proposed construction of an electrical distribution substation and transmission line interconnection in the vicinity of Apache Junction, Pinal County, Arizona. Four transmission line alternatives, each with a 200 foot wide right-of-way (ROW), are being considered for interconnection with an existing 115kV transmission line. One block parcel (28 acres) was surveyed that includes the proposed substation site, four transmission line alternatives, proposed and existing access roads, and pulling locations. One of the four transmission line interconnection alternatives was not surveyed in its entirety, as private landowner permission for survey was not granted before fieldwork.

The survey was requested by Salt River Project (SRP) to determine if significant cultural resources, which could be affected by the proposed undertaking, are present within the project area. Important cultural resources may include historic or prehistoric archaeological sites or objects, historically or architecturally significant structures, buildings, or landscapes, and traditional cultural places which are eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Background research and fieldwork was performed by Beau J. Goldstein. Dr. Everett Bassett served as Principal Investigator. One person field day was expended on this project.
