Interrogation Site Metadata

ACB - Asotin Cr. at Cloverland Brdg.

Status:   Active - Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Snake River Salmon Recovery Board
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 7/30/2009 12:00 AM

ACB is a permanent instream PIT tag interrogation site located near Cloverland Bridge (RKM 4.5) on Asotin Creek, a tributary of the Snake River. As of 10/23/2018 all previous components present at ACB have been replaced and upgraded. The site consists of 2 rows of antennas with each row containing one 20-foot and one 10-foot HDPE antenna, installed in flat-plate configuration. Each antenna is powered by a Biomark IS1001 (ACN) and the ACNs are connected to a Biomark IS1001-MTS master controller. The antennas were built and installed by WDFW. The site is connected to grid power to charge the battery bank powering the detection system. A cellular modem is installed on site to provide remote communication and allow for automated data collection, however, only manual data collection from the IS1001-MTS will occur at ACB until further notice. Prior to the upgrade, the site consisted of three antennas powered by an FS1001M.

Configuration

Configuration metadata includes details about the equipment used at the site to detect and record PIT tags. A new configuration sequence record is created when equipment is added or removed from the site and the period of time it was active. A configuration sequence without an End Date is currently active.

Event Log Summary

Event Date Event Type Comments
6/8/2022 1:00:00 AM GMC

Antennas 01 and 03 became disconnected from their nodes during the early morning of June 8, 2022 due to a flood event occurring in Asotin creek.  Antennas 01 and 03 will remain disconnected until stream flows decrease enough to reconnect them.  Antennas 02 and 04 continue to operate normally.

5/25/2022 12:00:00 PM GMC

Site visited to reconnect antennas 01 and 03 as flows have subsided somewhat in Asotin Creek.  Both antennas 01 and 03 were reconnected without issue and tuned prior to leaving site.  ACB now fully operational once again.  Antennas 01 and 03 were non operational between May 7 2022 and May 25, 2022.

5/12/2022 8:55:00 AM GMC

Site visited to assess damage after a recent high water/high debris event that began the evening of May 6.  Antennas 1 and 3 were disconnected from their nodes during the early morning hours of May 7.  All antennas appear to still be anchored in place.  Further damage assessment will occur once flows recede and visibility improves.  Antennas 2 and 4 continue to operate normally.

6/24/2020 12:45:00 PM General Antenna 3 reconnected to it's node and tuned. All four antennas now operating normally.
4/30/2020 9:00:00 AM General Antenna 3 became disconnected from its node at approximately 8:25am on 4/30/2020 due to a high flow event. As soon as Asotin creek flows decline enough the antenna will be reconnected.
2/23/2020 11:22:00 AM General Antenna 03 became unplugged from its node at approximately 20:00 hrs on the evening of February 8, 2020. The node was repositioned and the antenna 03 was plugged back into its node at approximately 15:00 hrs on February 23, 2020.
8/7/2019 2:21:34 PM General Nodes 1827.2645 - 1827.2648 updated with IS1001 Application Firmware v1.7.0, Master Controller CBG board updated with IS1001-MC CBG Board Firmware v1.7.0 and Master controller updated with IS1001-MC Application Firmware version 1.7.0.
5/30/2019 3:19:21 PM General Antenna 3 at ACB became disconnected from its node on 4/8/2019 at approximately 4:00 am that morning. Asotin Creek flow conditions have finally allowed for Antenna 3 to be reconnected to it's node on 5/30/2019. Antenna 3 has been tuned and has resumed normal operations.
10/23/2018 7:49:00 AM General All site components replaced/upgraded and installed. The site now consists of 2 rows of antennas with each row containing one 20- foot and one 10-foot HDPE antenna, installed in flat-plate configuration. Each antenna is powered by a Biomark IS1001 (ACN) and the ACNs are connected to a Biomark IS1001-MTS master controller. The antennas were built and installed by WDFW. The site is connected to grid power to charge the battery bank powering the detection system. A cellular modem is installed on site to provide remote communication and allow for automated data collection, however, only manual data collection from the IS1001-MTS will occur at ACB until further notice. Prior to the upgrade, the site consisted of three antennas powered by an FS1001M. A new site diagram and site description have been added to the site metadata page in Ptagis.
9/15/2017 12:50:00 PM SiteUp Replacement antennas installed at site. The new configuration only employs only 3 antennas due to the significant geomorphic change that occurred at the site during the spring of 2017 and the likelihood that the site will experience significant geomorphic change again in the spring of 2018. All antennas tuned and tested, site operating normally.
7/13/2017 1:22:00 PM SiteDown Site is down and in the process of being rebuilt/reinstalled. All damaged antennas and cables have been removed from the site. The 2 working antennae at the site have been unburied and replacements for the 2 damaged antennae have been acquired along with replacement cables and will be installed in the next couple of weeks.
5/31/2017 2:27:00 PM General Site visited for damage and repair/replacement assessment. Antennas 1 & 2 are still dry and buried under 0.5m of river cobbles but are both present and operating normally. Antennas 3 & 5 were not present at the MUX upon arrival at the site. After inspection it appeared the plug connections on both antennas had come loose during one of the many high water events Asotin Creek has experienced in late March and early April. Antenna 3 was plugged in, tuned and tested and is now back operating normally. Antenna 5 was plugged in but is not functional. Antenna 5 has shifted slightly and doesn't appear to be anchored along it's downstream and may have sustained damage as it sits directly within the thalweg at the site. Further damage assessment and removal and replacement of Antenna 5 will occur as water conditions allow. MUX Buffer was downloaded before leaving the site.
4/2/2017 2:53:47 PM SiteDown Site visited for further damage assessment as high water in Asotin Creek is receding. Antennas 1 and 2 are present but are dry and encased in a gravel bar that has formed within the North side of the creek channel at the site. Antennas 3 and 5 are not present at the MUX but are visible and do not appear to have moved but have simply come unplugged during the high water event. The water is still too high and swift to get out and plug antennas 3 and 5 back in. Further assessment will continue as Asotin Creek water levels further recede.
3/20/2017 8:10:35 AM General Site visited for damage assessment from current high water/flood event occurring in Asotin Creek. All 4 antennas present, high noise on antennas 1 and 2 could indicate that they are buried. Further assessment will occur as conditions allow.
2/13/2014 9:34:26 AM General As of 1/30/2014 site is completely operational. Antenna 4 is not longer in place, and the total number of antennas is down to 4 instead of 5 previously. Antenna sequence is as follows,1,2,3,5. All antennas have been tuned and are functional.
1/24/2014 8:17:46 AM General As of 12/10/2013, antennas # 3 and 4 are not reading Antenna #4 is completely broken and antenna #3 is unplugged.
1/8/2014 8:29:00 AM General Site visited and buffer downloaded. Antenna 4 is broken, antenna 5 has moved downstream but is still reading, antenna 3 not reading. Appears site damaged by ice sometime between December 3 and 13th based on flow gauge data.
11/11/2013 8:29:00 AM General Site visited and buffer downloaded. Site functioning normally.
