Cholla Project Archaeology, Volume 1, Introduction and Special Studies

Editor(s): J. Jefferson Reid

Year: 1982


The Arizona Public Service Cholla-Saguaro Transmission Line Mitigation Project, an undertaking as large as its full title suggests, began in April of 1977. The purpose of the Cholla Project was to mitigate construction impacts on prehistoric sites along that portion of the line extending from the Cholla generating plant, near the Little Colorado River, to the upper drainage of Devore Wash, south of Lake Roosevelt, a distance of 135 transmission-line miles.

The results of the Cholla Project are presented in five published volumes and two letter reports. The tables of contents for Volumes 2 through 5 are included in this volume as Appendix 1. One letter report presents an interpretation of information collected at AZ P:9:1 in the Chevelon Region, a site originally hypothesized to be a segment of General Crook's Road; another letter report presents descriptions of sites located in a supplemental survey in the Chevelon Region.
