NSS - North Santiam at Stayton Canal

Instream detection array on the North Santiam River, a tributary to the Wilammette River. The array is located in the screened diversion canal located near the town of Stayton, and downstream of Upper Bennet Dam and Lower Bennet Dam. The site is monitored by an IS-1001-MC and two IS1001-ACNs. The hardware at the site includes the master controller, two ACNs, cell modem, power supply and two antennas. The antenna configuration consists of two arrays of one antenna each. The antennas are each pass-thru anteannas located in the head-box at the apex of the screened diversion channel. One antenna is approximately 3ft x 3ft x 2in, and fixed in the canal as a ferrite-tile shielded low profile pass-thru antenna. The other antenna is removable, and placed in the stop-log slot for the head-box. It is also a pass thru antenna, approximately 3ft x 3ft x 3in, made of unshielded conduit. The site is grid powered and operates year-round. The site is on the City of Salem property, fenced and monitored by video.
