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 Havasu Pumping Plant borrow area of the Granite Reef Aqueduct. The Havasu Pumping Plant borrow area is about three miles east of the pumping plant site. The Havasu Pumping Plant lifts water from the Bill Williams arm of Lake Havasu to the Buckskin Mountains Tunnel.

This report describes the results of the archaeological survey conducted at the Havasu Pumping Plant borrow area 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 project area is located on a remnant terrace of the Bill Williams River.

One site was recorded during the Havasu Pumping Plant borrow area survey: AZ L:12:1 (ASU). This site is of indeterminate age, although is it likely associated with the Yuman tradition.
