Archaeological Monitoring for the Storm Drain Improvement Project in Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona

Author(s): Erik Steinbach

Year: 2014


The project consisted of improvements to existing storm drains and the relocation of a gas pipeline. The COP Archaeology Office reviewed this project and provided recommendations in a December 23, 2011 Archaeological Assessment Form. The form notes that the project is located entirely within the archaeological site of AZ T:12:256 (ASM)/Grand Canal Ruins, a large habitation site that contains pithouses, canals, and human remains. The COP Archaeology Office recommended that monitoring be conducted for all portions of this project area.

Two historic, one prehistoric, and two features of unknown dates were found during monitoring and recorded. The features consist of a historic trash pit, a historic storm drain manhole, a prehistoric cultural deposit, and two charcoal deposits.
