Second archaeologist accuses Arizona SP department of skipping required surveys before development

Paula Pflepsen, the agency's cultural-resource manager from 2014 to February 2017, said Wednesday that Parks Director Sue Black allowed development projects in at least three state parks without first conducting the required archaeological surveys.
