Summary

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) reported a violation of the Archaeological Resources Protection Act (ARPA) in April 2003 when a petroglyph boulder was removed from Reclamation land. The boulder was located on a terrace edge overlooking the Agua Fria River north of Lake Pleasant, within archaeological site AZ T:4:157(ASM). A criminal investigation followed. The petroglyph boulder was recovered in September 2003. Subsequent to the investigation, Mr. Jon Czaplicki, Reclamation Archaeologist, requested that Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) relocate the petroglyphs that were originally mapped when the site was recorded in 1996, remap their locations using a Global Positioning System (GPS) unit, and assess whether additional petroglyph boulders had been removed from AZ T:4:157(ASM) and/or adjacent site AZ T:4:156(ASM). The project also included relocation and mapping of the original datum stakes; mapping of natural and modern features such as terrace edges, drainages, and fences; and mapping of other selected archaeological features indicated as landmarks on CAD maps of the sites that were created in 1999.
