COP - Lower Coppei Instream Array

Status:   Active - Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 12/11/2015 12:00 AM

COP is a permanent instream PIT tag interrogation site at RKM 0.8 on Coppei Creek. The site consists of two rows of antennas, with each row spanning the wetted width of the channel during base flows. Each row consists of one 20-foot PVC antenna, installed in flat-plate configuration. Each antenna is powered by a Biomark IS1001 Master Controller, which replaced a QST QuBE in May 2021. The antennas were built and installed by WDFW. A cellular modem is installed on site to provide remote communication and allow for automated data collection. The electrical power at the site is provided by a local landowner with a 110 electrical outlet. Data currently will be downloaded by Biomark through a cell modem. No environmental monitors are installed at this time.
