A Cultural Resource "Re-Survey" of the Liberty-Parker 230 kV Transmission Line Right-of-Way, Central Arizona Project
Part of the Archaeological Survey and Investigations Along the Liberty-Parker-Hassayampa Transmission Line, Granite Reef Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project, La Paz and Maricopa Counties, Arizona project
Author(s): Glen Rice
Under contract with the Bureau of Reclamation, the Office of Cultural Resource Management (OCRM), Department of Anthropology, Arizona State University, completed an archaeological survey of the non-realigned portions of the Liberty-Parker 230kV Transmission Line. The Liberty-Parker-Hassayampa 230kV Transmission Line of the Granite Reef Aqueduct extends from the Liberty Substation to the Hassayampa Tab Substation.
This report describes the results of the archaeological surveys conducted along the Liberty-Parker 230kV Transmission Line of the Granite Reef Aqueduct. Results suggest that the project area was part of a secondary resource zone, an area which apparently did not support a permanent population, but was utilized intermittently, probably on a seasonal basis. The transmission line traverses the Buckskin Mountains, Cactus Plain, Butler Valley, Harcuvar Mountains, McMullen Valley, Harquahala Mountains, Aguila Valley, Vulture Mountains, and the Hassayampa Plain.
Eleven field loci and numerous isolated artifacts were recorded during the Liberty-Parker 230kV Transmission Line resurvey. Based on relative density of cultural material dispersion, field loci were grouped into two sites: AZ M:13:1 (ASU) and AZ T:5:5 (ASU). Most of the sites are of indeterminate age, although they are likely associated with the Hohokam or Yuman traditions.
