WEJ - Wells Dam Bypass Bay Sample

Bypass Bay 2 on the right (west) side of Wells dam on the Columbia River, Washington. During the first year of operation, the top middle four windows of the 64 open windows in the bypass baffle were monitored by antennas to detect a sample of PIT tagged fish using the bypass bay. In 2017, the configuration was expanded to monitor 16 of the 64 open windows in the middle right column.
