NMC - Ninemile Creek Instream Array

Status:   Active - Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Colville Confederated Tribes
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 2/12/2011 11:09 AM

Ninemile enters east side of Lake Osoyoos at Okanogan River RKM 129.5, north of the town of Oroville, WA. Site NMC is located on Ninemile Creek, 0.78 km upstream from the confluence with Lake Osoyoos. The setup consists of 3 pass-through HDPE antennas (a fourth original antenna was removed September 2019) accompanied by individual IS-1001 reader boards placed in series. All antennas are 10 feet in length, with antenna 1 the most upstream, antenna 2 the middle, and antenna 3 the downstream. The site is on grid power and regulated by an Acopian linear power supply to an MTS-MC. A bioprobe collects and stores both air and water temperatures as well as the water depth data. The NMC site has a Cloudgate 4G cellular modem which transmits data to PTAGIS through Biomark.
