Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project (FWPP) Cultural Resources Inventory

EnviroSystems conducted a cultural resources inventory of 3,265 acres within the Coconino National Forest, Arizona. Partly in response to the Schultz Fire and subsequent flooding that resulted in extensive damage to residential areas, Flagstaff approved a $10 million bond to support vegetation treatment surrounding Flagstaff to reduce the potential for catastrophic wildfire and the resulting impacts of flooding within residential areas and effects of erosion on the city’s water supply.

West Escudilla Restoration Project: Tenney-Pace Archaeological Survey

EnviroSystems very recently completed the cultural resources inventory of 2,439 acres composed of about 15 amorphous-shaped parcels within the greater West Escudilla Restoration Project (WERP). The current survey area, referred to as the WERP Tenney-Pace Survey, is located immediately east and south of Alpine with parcels located both north and south of US 180 on the Alpine Ranger District, Apache and Greenlee counties, Arizona.

Greens Peak Farm Bill Categorical Exclusion Phase 2 Archaeological Survey

EnviroSystems is in the process of completing the reporting efforts for a Phase 2 archaeological survey in support of the Greens Peak Farm Bill CE Project. This 725-acre survey completes the cultural resources inventory of the greater 2,978-acre Greens Peak Farm Bill CE project area proposed for prescribed burning. The project area is on the Springerville Ranger District of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests.
