The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is assisting the San Xavier District (District) of the Tohono O’odham Nation and the San Xavier Farm Cooperative in the extensive rehabilitation of approximately 1,700 acres of active and fallow farmland along the Santa Cruz River at San Xavier. The major impacts to fields and some adjacent lands will be from installation of water pipelines, laterals, and vaults; reconstruction of drainage channels; and construction of dikes to prevent storm water runoff, including an extension of the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) dike under Interstate 19 (I-19) at the Papago Interchange. The project is covered by a Memorandum of Agreement between Reclamation, San Xavier District, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and State Historic Preservation Office, including a burial agreement plan. Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) recently completed intensive testing within the proposed rights-of-way of the various project components (January–March, 2005) (report at tDAR ID: 393788), leading to the identification of three archaeologically sensitive areas. This construction monitoring plan utilizes the fieldwork data for establishing monitoring protocols and procedures to be followed during the construction phase.
The major elements of this monitoring plan were to identify the responsibilities of each party, establish contacts and protocol for notification and consultation communication, and to clearly identify consequences of noncompliance to construction schedule and in terms of liability to the Contractor. Contractor Specifications prepared by Reclamation clearly discussed the various monitoring conditions described in this plan.
