Description: This cooperative project in Casa Grande Ruins National Monument has two primary objectives. First, to develop a baseline Preservation Plan for 60 archaeological sites including 59 backcountry sites and the standing architecture of Compound A, a front-country site that addresses deferred maintenance of delicate adobe surfaces dating to A.D.1350. Second, to develop and implement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Treatment Recommendations for the 59 backcountry sites identified through recent condition assessments. The University of Arizona (UA) team will work with CAGR preservation staff to maintain the backfill levels at five identified archeological sites; backfilling preservation treatments will be focused at four (the Ballcourt, B, C, and G) of the 59 backcountry Maintained Archeological Sites and Compound A. Additional preservation treatments will address IPM needs and the development of rills and gullies as a result of water flowing over surfaces as identified at 54 backcountry archeological sites. Pest impacts and surface erosion are the biggest threats to backcountry cultural resources at Casa Grande Ruins.
