Papago Road Addendum Survey for San Xavier Farm Extension Project


In accordance with the provisions of the 2004 Arizona Water Settlement Act, the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is assisting the Tohono O’odham Nation’s (Nation) San Xavier District’s (District) Farm Cooperative (CoOp) in developing new farm land along both sides of Interstate 19 (I-19), south of the existing CoOp fields. Previous investigations in the area included a survey in the mid-1980s by Cultural and Environmental Systems (Heuett 1987a), and survey and testing completed by Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) in 1999 (Glass 2001), 2005 (Schilling et al. 2005; Stokes 2007), 2011–2012 (Schilling et al. 2012), and most recently 2015 (Gregory et al. 2016). The focus of this current field effort is to conduct an additional survey adjacent to the farm extension in anticipation of the expansion of Papago Road, so that it may provide better access from the farm to I-19, as well as areas south of the farm extension where temporary construction roads may be installed to better access the riverbank. A total of 54 acres were surveyed and 6 sites were recorded, of which 5 were recommended eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places and 1 was recommended as unevaluated.
