An Archaeological Analysis of the Proposed Florence Water Treatment Plant

Author(s): William S. Marmaduke; T. S. Hartzell

Year: 1987


In 1987, the Bureau of Reclamation directed Northland Research, Inc. to complete a Class I and III cultural resource literature search and survey for the proposed site of the Florence Water Treatment Plant and its associated delivery lines, an element of the Central Arizona Project located near the Salt-Gila Aqueduct. Three archaeological loci representing Hohokam use of the area were recorded in or near the project area. In order to evaluate the loci within the context of the intensive site investigations that have previously occurred in the Florence area, they conducted an extensive literature search regarding the Florence archaeological district. They determined that the recorded loci represented elements of a site recorded by Gila Pueblo named Florence 7:8 (GP), and determined that significant site deposits likely remain at one of the loci (Locus #2). The report primarily consists of a summary overview of previous site investigations in the Florence area, and a discussion of research directions and questions that remain to be addressed concerning sites in this area.
