PES - Peshastin Creek

Status:   Active - Operations Unspecified
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 5/10/2007 12:00 AM

This is a permanent instream PIT tag interrogation site at rkm 3 located on Peshastin Creek below the bridge at Smithson’s property. 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 15-foot and 1 10-foot PVC antennas, installed in flat-plate configuration. The FS1001M transceiver is powered by grid. 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. A submersible pressure transducer and temperature probes are installed on site to monitor environmental conditions.
