CBS - Clear Branch Dam spillwayStatus: Active - Non-Operational
General Operational Period: Seasonally
Start Date: 4/4/2017 12:00 AM
The interrogation site is located at the spillway of Clear Branch Dam. The site uses a single 10 ft x 2 ft PVC cased antenna mounted on the entrance of the spillway in a pass-through configuration. During moderate to low spillway flows all water spilling from the reservoir passes through a notch in the spillway entrance which the antenna completely surrounds. At high spillway flows water may top the spillway retaining wall outside of the coverage of the antenna. The interrogation site will be operated seasonally depending on when the reservoir is at full pool and spill is occurring at Clear Branch Dam. The antenna is controlled by a Biomark IS1001 ACN reader. Power is provided by solar panel(s) charging a deep cycle battery bank. Interrogation data is manually downloaded periodically.
