2011 1/1/2011 12:00 AM 1/1/2012 12:00 AM Juvenile bypass and fish sampling facility became operational on March 5. The fish sampling facility dewatered on July 1. The juvenile bypass (antenna 81) remained operational until November 1.
2010 1/1/2010 12:00 AM 1/1/2011 12:00 AM
2009 1/1/2009 12:00 AM 1/1/2010 12:00 AM The PIT antenna at the adult ladder (01) has operated continuously since the first of the year. The WEID juvenile fish outfall began diverting water on March 20, and the antenna (81) was activated on March 26. The TMF juvenile bypass antennas (51 and 52) were active from March 24 through June 30.
2008 1/1/2008 12:00 AM 1/1/2009 12:00 AM
2007 1/1/2007 12:00 AM 1/1/2008 12:00 AM The diversion canal (and juvenile fish bypass system) watered up on March 15. Josh Hanson, ODFW, informed us that the adult ladder is dewatered as of today, Aug. 31, and will remained dewatered until Sept. 3. Flows through the juvenile bypass outfall are scheduled to increase on Sept. 4 from the current 5 cfs to ~30 cfs. This morning, as a precautionary step, Josh removed the antenna from the juvenile bypass. He will redeploy the antenna on Sept. 4 after flows through the facility have stabilized.
2006 11/8/2006 3:00 PM 1/1/2007 12:00 AM First year for TMF site, which combines and replaces the previous TMJ and TMA sites.

Configuration

Configuration metadata includes details about the equipment used at the site to detect and record PIT tags. A new configuration sequence record is created when equipment is added or removed from the site and the period of time it was active.
