SC2 - Lower SF Clearwater R at rkm 2

Status:   Active - Operations Unspecified
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Biomark
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 9/19/2011 12:00 AM

Instream detection system consisting of a tandem array located in the lower South Fork Clearwater River. The array (SC2) located at river km 2 (N 46.12749 W -115.97730) consists of a single array of six 20 ft Biomark flat panel antennas each. The array spans the channel during low flow conditions. SC2 is operated by the Integrated Status and Effectiveness Monitoring Project (ISEMP) cooperators Nez Perce Tribe and Quantitative Consultants, Inc. and was installed for continuous monitoring on September 19, 2011. The array includes ISEMP standard site monitoring equipment including: air and water temperature probes, and a water pressure transducer to monitor stream level. Electrical power is provided by grid power and remote communication provided by a cellular modem.

Event Date Event Type Comments
12/8/2020 2:01:00 PM General SC2 antenna B5 lost current on October 27, 2020. B5 was replaced with a 20 ft. Biomark PVC antenna. SC2 is running continuously without disruption through December 14, 2020.
9/21/2020 2:06:00 PM General South Fork Clearwater 2 (SC2) is operating continuously without disruption through September 21, 2020.
8/21/2019 3:47:00 PM General South Fork Clearwater 2 (SC2) lost current to antennas A1 and A2 on April 2, 2019 during high spring flows thus ripping the cables out. A2 was simply plugged back in and resumed normal current on August 20, 2019. A1 was replaced with a 20 ft. PVC Biomark antenna due to a water leak inside the existing antenna and resumed normal current on August 21, 2019. Antenna A6 was also replaced on August 21, 2019 with a 20 ft. PVC Biomark antenna due to intermittent current. SC2 is running continuously without disruption through September 30. 2019.
10/10/2018 7:10:00 AM General South Fork Clearwater Array (SC2) had Campbell Scientific data logger replaced with a new data logger designed by Biomark on October 8, 2018.
