Archaeological Survey and Investigations Along Reach 6, Granite Reef Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project, Maricopa County, Arizona
Under contract with the Bureau of Reclamation, the Office of Cultural Resource Management (OCRM), Department of Anthropology, Arizona State University, completed an archaeological survey of Reach 6, nearby access roads, water detention areas, and a maintenance yard. Reach 6 of the Granite Reef Aqueduct extends about 17 miles from Burnt Mountain east to the Belmont Mountains. OCRM archaeologists recommended no further investigations along Reach 6 following survey and surface collection.
This project presents the survey reports that describe the results of archaeological work within Reach 6 of the Granite Reef Aqueduct. The investigations identified a pattern of secondary resource zone exploitation in the desert areas between the river valleys. Researchers defined and described a secondary resource zone as an area which did not support a permanent population, but was utilized intermittently, probably on a seasonal basis, in the exploitation of wild plant and animal food resources by people whose primary subsistence was derived from a different zone.
