Interrogation Site Metadata

CRW - Chewuch River above Winthrop

Status:   Active - Operations Unspecified
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 4/14/2010 2:00 PM

This is a passive in-stream interrogation system on the Chewuch River at river km 1, above Winthrop, WA. The system consists of two arrays of three antennas each. The arrays span most of the channel. The arrays are in tandem to provide directionality data and increase detection probability. All antennas are anchored in a pass-by configuration. Antenna 1 and antenna 4 are 30 ft antennas made up of two sectional 15 ft pieces. Antennas 2, 3, 5 and 6 are 20 ft antennas.

4/7/2014 10:09:29 AM General all data uploaded to site as of 3/28/2014 Changed lithium battery on 3/10/2014 @ 11:40 WDFW replaced antennas 1,2,4,5,6 and cables 1-6, and moved the box closer to bank on 3/18/2014. All antennas are up and running. Due to lack of funding, Kyle Martens of the USGS will no longer be responsible for this site. For more information please contact Michael Newsom (MNewsom@usbr.gov).
