PRH - Priest Rapids Hatchery Outfall

Status:   Active - Non-Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 5/16/2012 12:00 AM

This site is a permanent PIT tag detection system located in the Priest Rapids Hatchery outfall channel. The site is located just upstream of the typical point of inundation in the channel. All juvenile fish released and adults returning to the Priest Rapids Hatchery pass through the channel and the detection site. The site consists of six antennas in series, installed in pass-through configuration. Each antenna spans the wetted width of the channel. The antennas were built and installed by WDFW. The site is powered by a photovoltaic array. A Campbell Scientific CR-1000 and cellular phone modem are also installed at the site. Two temporary antennas may be installed upstream of the permanent array during extreme high water events.

Event Log Summary

Event Date Event Type Comments
7/12/2018 10:32:00 AM General On 7-12-18 the temporary antennas, 01 02, and power supply were removed from the outfall channel above the permanent array. Data was downloaded on 7-12-18 and submitted on 7-16-18.
6/26/2017 1:00:00 PM General On 6/26/2017 the two temporary antennas, IS1001s, and the solar panels where removed from the Priest Rapids Hatchery outfall channel.
5/19/2017 10:00:00 AM General Due to higher than normal flows at the existing array, two temporary 10 foot antennas where installed in series in a pass-through configuration approximately 420 meters upstream of the existing PRH array. Each antenna spanned the wetted width of the channel. Both antennas where operated by 2 synchronized IS1001 readers and 24V DC battery bank connected to solar panels powered the detection system.
5/17/2017 7:49:00 AM General On 5/05/17 the GFCI breaker was tripped and the batteries slowly discharged. On 5/17/17 the GFCI was reset and all batteries were replaced.
3/14/2017 8:22:00 AM General From 03-06-2017 5:00 to 3-14-2017 11:03 an error occurred on the fs1001M and no tags were buffered during this time period. The reader was reset and is now buffering tags.
4/25/2016 11:00:00 AM SiteDown At interrogation site PRH, site lost power on 4/25/2016 at approximately 11:00 AM. On 4/26/2016 at approximately 15:27 PM site was brought back online and is fully operational.
8/30/2013 8:00:00 AM General PRH was connected to grid power in August 2013.
8/30/2013 8:00:00 AM General PRH was shutdown from 7/2/13 to 8/29/13. There was no water in the outfall channel so the site was put in standby.
5/23/2013 8:00:00 AM General PRH was turned on 5/23/13, after being turned off during the winter and spring due to limited solar power input, and little or no water in the outfall channel.
