DescriptionThis report is the result of a preliminary environmental assessment of the impact of past mining activities on water quality in the Bradshaw Mountains area. The assessment in Phase 1 of a multiphase project. The ultimate goals of the project are: 1) to focus on a relatively small portion of the Bradshaw Mountains for further characterization; (2) to mitigate water quality problems at the selected site; and (3) to develop general guidelines for containment and/or abatement of mining-related water contamination problems. Phase 1 was executed by the Arizona Geological Survey in cooperation with the Arizona State Land Department and under contract with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. Phase 1 involved the collection, review and evaluation of existing geologic, hydrologic and mining information on the Bradshaw Mountains area (see page 2 for study area location). The results of Phase 1 include: and overview of the data which were readily available; a general sense of where the most suitable areas for further study are; and what the largest data gaps are.

Binghampton Rural Historic District, a study of an urban neighborhood's attempt to gain historic district statusZube, Ervin H.; Mann, Christine Toler, 1946- (The University of Arizona., 1991)The River Bend neighborhood should be preserved as Binghampton Rural Historic District because it is a vestige of the Mormon colony of Binghampton and because it preserves part of the farming history of the Tucson basin. It reflects the pattern of both Mormon agrarian colonization and western settlement. Reminders of the original Mormon farmers exist in the form of fence lines, tree lined roads, orchards, and irrigation ditches. Unpaved, straight streets are aligned with the cardinal directions. The clustering of buildings in a comparatively large open space is characteristic of the spatial arrangement of rural Mormon landscapes. A survey of residents indicates a majority support the petition to become a historic district, but rezoning is a political process which will require the neighborhood to use a multi-faceted approach to achieve protection.
