SSC - Silver Side Channel (Methow)

Status:   Decommissioned
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 11/14/2014 12:00 AM
End Date: 12/6/2019 11:00 AM

SSC is a permanent instream PIT tag interrogation site located in the silver side channel, which flows into the Methow River at rkm 56.16. From 2014 until October 2016, the site was located at rkm 0.32 of the channel and consisted of two rows of three 20’ antennas. The channel underwent an extensive habitat project and the site was reinstalled downstream at rkm 0.19 of the channel. The site now consists of two rows of antennas, with each row spanning the wetted width of the channel during high flow. Each row consists of four 20’ HDPE antennas, installed in flat-plate configuration over non-channel areas, and in pass-through orientation in the channel itself. Each antenna is powered by a Biomark IS1001 (ACN) and the ACNs are connected to a QST QuBE. The antennas and ACN enclosures were built by West Fork Environmental. The site is powered by a series of four solar panels being regulated by a charge controller. SSC has remote communication abilities provided by a cellular modem. Site is no longer active.
