2010 1/1/2010 12:00 AM 1/1/2011 12:00 AM VC2 was shut down from July 22-24 for an antena upgrade. Three 10' antennas were removed and replaced with six 20' antennas arranged in two arrays of three antennas each that span the stream from bank to bank. The new configuration was operational on July 24. The site was down from July 28 - August 5 due to a solar panel failure.

Event Log Summary

Event Date Event Type Comments
8/10/2021 9:53:00 AM General

This site was upgraded from a mux to a Master Controller and six IS1001 readers. The old antennas were removed and replaced with six new antennas in the same general location, although the upstream and downstream arrays are farther apart than the original setup.

The new antennas are all 20' ABS antennas with attached IS1001 nodes. They are laid out in upstream and downstream arrays of three antennas. The two arrays are approximately 300' apart from each other. Each array is connected to the MC with a 200' CANBus cable.

The original 5060 TEG was replaced by a 5120 TEG.

9/18/2018 7:06:29 AM General Valley Creek 2 (VC2) antenna cable for B3 was ripped out in high flows on 6/25/18. The cable for B3 was plugged back in on 8/20/18 and began functioning again. All antennas were armored with available large cobble. Old locks were replaced with new locks. VC2 is operating continuously without disruption through 9/17/18.
11/22/2016 2:00:00 PM General Valley Creek 2 is running continuously without disruption through 11/22/16.
