BRC - Bear Valley Adult Video Weir

On June 28, 2012, the Tribes, with assistance from Biomark, installed a pass-through interrogation system on the existing Bear Valley Creek Chinook adult monitoring weir to evaluate the returns of PIT tagged adults to Bear Valley Creek, Idaho. The interrogation site consists of two 24 x 24 inch Biomark pass-through antennas attached to the video chamber box, separated by six feet to provide upstream and downstream detection capability. The antenna cables are woven across the weir panels to the central mux, located in a weather resistant, insulated and fan cooled cargo trailer adjacent to the weir. Power is supplied by four tandem 50 amp-hour 12 volt DC batteries under constant charge from the on-site camp trailer generator. The in-stream location is characterized as a B-type channel with 2-4 percent grade, a B-type streambed, and a 2-3 (boulder:cobble) steam type.
