JPT is a permanent instream PIT tag interrogation site at RKM 87.5 on the Touchet river. 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 2 20 foot HDPE antennas, installed in flat-plate configuration. Each antenna is powered by a Biomark Multiplexing Reader IS1001-MC Master Controller. The antennas were built and installed by WDFW. The electrical power at the site is provided by Washington Department of fish and Wildlife with a 110 electrical outlet located at the Touchet Adult Trap upstream. Data currently will be downloaded by Biomark through a cell modem. No environmental monitors are installed at this time.
