TAN - Taneum Creek Instream

Status:   Active - Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 2/18/2010 12:00 AM

TThe interrogation site is located on Taneum Creek. From 2010 through 2016, it was located near the mouth of the creek. In 2017, the site was relocated approximately 3 km upstream near the Taneum Canal Company diversion dam and fish screen. The site is currently operating two stream-width antennas in a pass over configuration, synchronized by a Biomark IS1001 Master Controller. Each antenna is approximately 8.5 meters (28 ft) in length and 1 m (3 ft) wide. Previous configurations used a Destron-Fearing FS1001M transceiver and had from 1 to 6 antennas.

5/12/2020 10:19:00 AM SiteDown There is a problem with the power source that needs to be addressed before the site will be back online. This will be dealt with as soon as possible.
2/7/2020 10:41:00 AM General On 02/07/2020 after 10:11:56, the last timer tag record, antenna 1 of the TAN instream interrogation site stopped working. Yesterday 02/13/2020, I went to the site to see if any damage had occurred from the most recent flood event that began on the 6th. Antenna one was the only damaged antenna. Antennas 2 and 3 will continue to monitor until we are able to get in and revamp the site.
1/29/2020 8:56:00 AM SiteDown The Taneum Creek antenna site "TAN", was down due to a power outage from a bad battery bank from the dates of 01/29/2020 @ 01:12:19 - 02/04/2020 @ 11:31:59. The batteries were replaced and all firm ware was updated at the site, including the master controller, cellular modem and all three antenna nodes. There was also a corrupt external hard drive that was removed unlocking commands, so that we could remotely communicate with the master controller from our offices.
