Abstract:

Between April 26 and May 7, 1982, personnel from Nickens and Associates of Montrose, Colorado, conducted limited data recovery at 98 cultural resources in the Abiquiu Reservoir Multiple Resource Area. The work was conducted for the purpose of developing a management plan for sites in the project area. Due to time and budgetary constraints, the scope-of-work had divided the 244 sites requiring data into six priority groups, based on types of potential project impacts and types of data required. The scope-of-work required that data recovery focus on the higher priority groups, and that investigations of a sample of the sites in the lower priority groups would be appropriate. Specific tasks to be conducted at each site, such as site staking, site mapping, general description, and determinations of site depth, integrity, and dating and subsistence potential, were included in the scope-of-work.
