Navajo Generation Station at Page, Arizona, Preliminary Report
Author(s): Peter J. Pilles
An archaeological investigation of the proposed Navajo Generation Station was conducted by the Museum of Northern Arizona from December 10 through 12, 1969, for the purpose of archaeological clearance. The Museum was represented by Alexander J. Lindsay, Jr., Curator of Anthropology, and Peter J. Pilles, Jr., Salvage Archaeologist, who found five prehistoric sites and two modern Navajo sites during the course of the survey.
This proposed facility is a large steam operated electrical generation plant being jointly constructed by the Arizona Public Service Company, the Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District, the City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the Tucson Gas and Electric Company, and the Nevada Power Company. .It is located along Navajo Route 22, about 4.5 miles east of Page, Arizona, and consists of a plant site, an ash disposal area, a road between them, a water pumping station, a pipeline and road right-of-way from the pumping station to the plant site, and a road from Navajo Route 22-B to the pumping station. Sites were found in only three of these areas.
This is a preliminary report.
