An Archaeological and Documentary Survey of the Historic Utah Ditch, Maricopa County, Arizona
Under contract to the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) conducted a Class III survey of two canal alignments variously identified as the historic Utah Ditch or Utah Canal. Reclamation's original delivery order was for one alignment, but because of questions as to the actual location of the Utah Ditch, the survey area was expanded to include a second suspected alignment. Extensive archival research was completed to document the history and construction of the canal. The study identified the two alignments as segments of four historic canals: the Utah, the Utah Extension, the Mesa, and the Consolidated. Four new archaeological sites, one previously recorded site, and 17 isolates were located.
