RCT - Roaring Creek Temporary Array

Status:   Active - Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Seasonally
Start Date: 3/3/2011 12:00 AM

This is generally a seasonal PIT tag detection system, based on flows, that is located at rkm 0.3 on Roaring Creek (Entiat River basin). The detection system consists of 2 10-foot antennas, installed in a pass-through configuration. The antennas span the wetted width of the channel during base flows. The site was initially equipped with a single antenna operated by an Allflex RM 310 reader board and data stored on an Acumen Databridge. In April 2017, the second antenna was installed and both antennas are operated by 2 synchronized IS1001 readers. Data from the antennas in the new configuration is stored on a USB flash drive that is uploaded to PTAGIS on a monthly basis. A 24V DC battery bank connected to solar panel powers the detection system. The antennas were built and installed by USFWS and NOAA staff. The site is typically installed and operated from February to July annually.
