Data Recovery Plan for the SRP Dinosaur-to-Hunt Substations 12kV/69kV Electric Lines, Pinal County, Arizona


Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District (SRP) plans to construct new 12kV /69kV electric lines between the Dinosaur and Hunt substations east of Queen Creek, Arizona. A cultural resources survey has determined that portions of nine archaeological sites which meet criteria for inclusion on the Arizona and National Register of Historic Places are present within the electric lines corridor (Clark 2007). SRP has further established that construction activity for the Dinosaur-to-Hunt electric lines could affect cultural resources at four of the nine sites (Table 1). At SRP' s request, Desert Archaeology, Inc., has prepared this plan to implement data recovery investigations within those portions of the Arizona/National Register-eligible sites that may be adversely affected by construction of the proposed electric lines. This effort is being conducted to comply with the Arizona Antiquities Act of 1960 (as amended) and State Historic Preservation Act of 1982, as required for leasing right-of-way from the state. All of the archaeological sites are located on Arizona State Trust Land (ASLD Right-of-Way Application No. No. 14-111649). Permitting for archaeological work on these sites is handled through the Arizona State Museum (ASM), where project records will also be curated.
