Archaeological Investigations Along the Bouse Hills-Harcuvar-Little Harquahala Transmission Lines, Features of the Granite Reef Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project
Part of the Archaeological Survey and Investigations Along the Bouse Hills-Harcuvar-Little Harquahala 115 kV Transmission Lines, Granite Reef Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project, La Paz County, Arizona project
Author(s): Ed Dobbins
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 Bouse Hills-Harcuvar-Little Harquahala 115 kV transmission lines. The Bouse Hills-Harcuvar Transmission Line stretches 23.3 miles from the Harcuvar Substation to the Bouse Hills Pumping Plant. The Harcuvar-Little Harquahala Transmission Line stretches 41.7 miles from the Harcuvar Substation to the Little Harquahala Pumping Plant.
OCRM archaeologists identified and documented 8 field loci and 8 isolated artifacts during the Bouse Hills-Harcuvar-Little Harquahala 115 kV transmission lines survey. Based on relative density of cultural material dispersion, field loci were grouped into one site: AZ S:6:7 (ASU).
Mitigation was completed at one site and three field loci in the winter of 1979. Excavation of 3 cobble features was completed at AZ S:6:7 (ASU). Surface collection was completed at FL 1, FL 6 and FL 9.
The investigations identified a pattern of secondary resource zone exploitation in the desert areas between the river valleys. Researchers defined and described a secondary resource zone as an area which did not support a permanent population, but was utilized intermittently, probably on a seasonal basis, in the exploitation of wild plant and animal food resources by people whose primary subsistence was derived from a different zone.
