Summary

The Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office (PXAO) partnered with the City of Goodyear and the Corps of Engineers to develop an artificial wetland for the purpose of treating brine concentrated wastewater to be discharged into surface waters at the Tres Rios Wetlands Demonstration Site, in Maricopa County, Arizona. Although the area had been investigated for the presences of buried cultural resources prior to construction, human remains and associated grave goods were discovered during construction of the wetland ponds. At the request of PXAO, Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) excavated and analyzed the isolated human remains and associated grave goods before construction was allowed to resume. This project presents the results of this undertaking.
