Status:   Active - Operational
Site Type: Adult Fishway  |  Organization: Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Seasonally
Start Date: 3/2/2015 12:00 AM

Instream detection array located in the adult-return fish ladder at the Catherine Creek weir. Site includes two pass-through antennas secured to weir-dam boards. Antennas are each powered by Biomark IS-1001’s that are synchronized. Each IS-1001 has a unique IP address which can be accessed over the Advantech Smartflex Cell modem located inside the adult return ladder. The site is on grid power.

Event Date Event Type Comments
3/30/2021 9:35:00 AM General No data was collected at this site from 3/29/2021 at 23:00 hrs through 4/28/21 at 11:42 a.m. Data was lost due to a GFCI breaker that tripped and shut down power to the PIT tag equipment for an entire month.
2/28/2019 12:14:00 PM General Replaced the Raven X wireless modem with a SmartWork Hub cellular modem.
7/14/2017 5:03:23 PM General Replaced the power supply. Site was down from 3:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
7/12/2017 4:45:00 PM SiteUp Power supply re-set at 4:30 p.m. on 12 July. No data from 9 July at 4:45 p.m. until 12 July at 4:30 p.m. Plan on replacing the faulty power supply.
7/9/2017 4:45:00 PM SiteDown Power supply failure on 9 July at 4:45 p.m. Site down until 4:30 p.m. on 12 July.
4/1/2017 12:10:00 PM General Site lost power from 1 April @ 12:05 p.m. until 4 April @ 9:10 a.m. No data was collected during the power outage.
3/10/2017 11:11:00 AM SiteUp Site was down for equipment upgrades from Feb 27 to March 10th. Site was operational again at 11:00 a.m. on March 10th. Site upgrades: installed two new HDPE pass-through antennas (approximately 36" X 60"). Each antenna is operated by an IS1001. Antennas were placed in the same locations as the previous antennas. Site configuration did not change.
2/27/2017 2:50:00 PM SiteDown Site down temporarily for maintenance and equipment upgrades. Approximately 1-2 weeks will be required to complete equipment installation.
7/3/2016 4:50:00 PM SiteDown No data (apparent FS1001 M malfunction) from 7/3/2016 until the PIT tag equipment was fixed on 7/5/2016 at 15:30 hours. The multiplexer malfunctioned.
7/3/2016 4:50:00 PM SiteUp Replaced the FS1001M. The site was restored at 13:30 hours on 7/5/2016.
5/12/2016 10:00:00 AM SiteUp Power turned back on at 10:00 a.m. on 12 May. A GFI outlet tripped resulting in a loss of power to the power supply. The site was down from 5 May at 20:30 hours until 12 May 10:00 a.m.
5/5/2016 8:30:00 PM SiteDown Power failure. No data from 5/5/2016 at 20:30 hours to 5/12/2016 at 10:00 a.m.
4/28/2016 2:15:00 PM SiteUp The connection to antenna 1 was fixed at 2:15 p.m. on 4/28/2016. The antenna cord for antenna 2 was re-rerouted in an attempt to reduce noise levels on antenna 2.
4/22/2016 9:40:00 AM SiteDown At approximately 9:40 A.M on April 22nd, antenna 1 became disconnected. Antenna 2 also failed to detect tags. Antenna 1 was inoperable from 4/22/2016 at 9:40 am. until 4/28/2016 at 2:15 p.m.. The connection to antenna 1 was fixed at 2:15 p.m. on 4/28/2016.
2/26/2016 5:00:00 AM SiteUp Equipment powered up on February 26. The Catherine Creek weir was operational on March 1st.
7/29/2015 7:00:00 AM SiteDown The Catherine Creek weir was pulled on 29 July, ending the 2015 trapping season. No efforts will be taken to collected additional PIT tag data at the CCW in 2015 until the adult weir is operational again for the 2016 trapping season.
7/28/2015 7:00:00 AM General A switch in the breaker box for the outlet that supplied AC power to the DC power supply for the MUX switched off. This power failure resulted in no PIT tag data on 7/28/2015.
4/20/2015 1:57:55 PM General Site visit by Joseph Feldhaus on 4/20/2015. Antenna 2 is has been failing to detect PIT Tags for over a week. Adult ladder was dewatered from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Checked antenna connections on Antenna 2. Removed some debris that was lodged against the antenna and removed some slack out of the connecting antenna cable. Physical test tags were being detected by both antennas. After water was put back in the adult ladder, both antennas continued to detect physical test tags.
4/9/2015 4:46:49 PM General Site visit by Joseph Feldhaus on 4/9/15 . There was excessive noise levels on antenna 2 from 4/8/15 to 4/9/15. The virtual test tag was not detected on antenna 2 for all of 4/8/15 and most of 4/9/15. I replaced a cable connection to antenna 2 at 15:45 hrs on 4/9/15. This dramatically reduced the noise levels for antenna 2. Tested both antennas with this PIT tag 3D9.1BF100DEE2.
3/2/2015 8:36:00 AM SiteUp The adult weir at Catherine Creek was operational the morning of 2 March 2015. The weir panels were raised and water was allowed to flow through the fish ladder. The PIT antennas are located in the fish ladder (see Interrogation metadata for a site drawing).
2/19/2015 9:07:51 AM General Registered new site at Catherine Creek Ladder/Weir as CCW.
