Summary

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 McCullough-Davis 230 kV Transmission Line. The McCullough-Davis 230 kV Transmission Line stretches 61 miles from the McCullough Substation in the Eldorado Valley to Davis Dam on the Colorado River.

This report describes the results of the archaeological surveys conducted along McCullough-Davis 230 kV 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 McCullough Mountains, Eldorado Valley, the Piute Valley, and the Newberry Mountains.

Three field loci and 10 isolated artifacts were recorded during the McCullough-Davis 230 kV Transmission Line survey. Based on relative density of cultural material dispersion, field loci were grouped into two sites: AZ F:5:1 (ASU) and AZ F:5:2 (ASU). Most of the loci are of indeterminate age, although they are likely associated with the Hohokam or Yuman traditions.
