MVP - Mid-Valley Acclimation Pond

The site is installed within the outlet of the lower most pond in an off-channel pond complex on the Methow River, located at River km 87.6. The outlet is approximately .5 mi. in length with a wetted width varying from 3ft to 50 feet. The detection systems are installed in series within the outlet and are comprised of three model 2001F-ISO portable PIT detection units. The first antenna is a 24in X 24in pass through and identified as Upstream antenna 01, while second and third antennas are 9ft X 3ft pass-through antennas and identified as Middle antenna 02 and Downstream antenna 03, respectively. Upstream antenna 01 is located approximately 40 ft. upstream of Middle antenna 02, while Middle antenna 02 is approximately 15 ft. upstream of Downstream antenna 03. The interrogation systems are intended to monitor juvenile escapement, in-pond, and smolt to smolt survival. The systems are operational during juvenile acclimation. Typical times of operation for this site are March 1 to June 15.
