FST - Foster Creek

FST is a permanent PIT tag interrogation site on Foster Creek. Foster Creek enters the Columbia River at RKM 876.9, approximately 2.2 km up river from the town of Bridgeport, WA. FST is located approximately 0.1 km upstream from the confluence with the Columbia River. The site consists of a single 10 foot antenna anchored upright for pass-through detection. The antenna spans the wetted width of the channel at base flow. When installed in 2014 FST was equipped with an Allflex RM 310 reader and an Acumen data logger powered by batteries. In September 2018, the site was updated with a 10 foot HDPE antenna, IS1001 reader, and solar panels to provide power to the 12V battery bank.
