SPR - Sanpoil River Instream Array

Status:   Active - Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Colville Confederated Tribes
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 7/13/2016 12:00 AM

SPR is a permanent PIT tag interrogation system in the Sanpoil River, near Keller, WA. The Sanpoil River enters the Columbia River at RKM 981, which is 21 km upstream of Grand Coulee Dam. SPR is located 14 km upstream from the confluence with the Columbia River. The site consists of nine 20 foot HDPE antennas anchored to the stream bed for pass-over detection. Antennas are configured in 2 separate rows (5-upstream, 4-downstream). Each antenna is powered by a Biomark IS1001 reader multiplexed by an IS1001-MC. Power is delivered by a 1kw solar array that charges a 4 battery bank capable of 1000ah of reliable DC voltage. The site is not connected to any remote cellular or satellite communications and is only downloaded manually on site.
