Summary

As authorized under the Arizona Water Settlements Act of 2004, the San Carlos and Irrigation Drainage District (SCIDD) is undertaking a 10-year rehabilitation project of its irrigation system. SCIDD is the non-Indian irrigation component of the San Carlos Irrigation Project (SCIP), which provides irrigation water to the communities of Florence, Coolidge, and Casa Grande in Pinal County, Arizona. The initial focus of the SCIDD Rehabilitation Project is the rehabilitation of the Ashurst-Hayden Diversion Dam and its associated headworks, which diverts water from the Gila River for SCIP; the armoring of a segment of the south bank of the Gila River, and the construction of a sediment removal pond and storage area downstream of Ashurst-Hayden Diversion Dam. The Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office (Reclamation) directed Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) to conduct a Class III survey of 458 acres of Federal and Private land in anticipation of this undertaking.

During the survey ACS identified 11 archaeological sites, four of which were previously recorded, and 24 isolated occurrences. Nine of the archaeological sites identified date to the Historic period and the remaining two are prehistoric. Two of the archaeological sites were determined eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) by the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office. Three other sites have been recommended as eligible, and six are recommended as not eligible for inclusion in the NRHP. Based on the results of this survey, it was determined that historic properties would be impacted by the proposed undertaking and it was recommended that Reclamation develop a treatment plan to mitigate adverse effects to properties that could not be avoided.
