Archaeological Survey and Investigations Along the Liberty-Parker-Hassayampa Transmission Line, Granite Reef Aqueduct, Central Arizona Project, La Paz and Maricopa Counties, 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 realigned portions of the Liberty-Parker and Parker-Havasu 230 kV transmission line, a 100 meter wide corridor adjacent to the non-realigned portions of the Liberty-Parker 230kv transmission line, the Liberty-Parker-Hassayampa 115kV transmission line, and the Harcuvar Substation. In total OCRM surveyed 115 miles of transmission line. The Liberty-Parker-Hassayampa transmission line stretches from the Liberty Substation to the Parker Substation and then to the Hassayampa Tab Substation.
Following the survey, OCRM archaeologists conducted archaeological investigations at two sites located along the Liberty-Parker transmission line to mitigate the adverse effects of disturbance in the project area. Archaeological investigations consisted of surface collection, mapping, and excavation.
This project presents the survey and mitigation reports that describe the results of archaeological work within the Liberty-Parker-Hassayampa Transmission Line 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.
