Timelapse Cameras Finally Set Up!

After months of planning, Steve and I finally have our timelapse cameras in place and firing photos.  They’ll each be shooting one photo every daylight hour for the next few years, capturing the deconstruction of Condit Dam and the return of the White Salmon River to a healthy, freeflowing ecosystem.

The cameras are stationed in two spots–directly below the dam shooting upstream and 0.3 mi upstream of the dam shooting downstream.  We’ll be posting video clips as progress happens, so stay tuned!

  1. Andy,

    Can’t wait to see some footage. If you know anyone who might be interested in a couple of slightly used Canon Rebels in a couple of years have them ccall me!

  2. Great work. Some people believe that the influence of the dam and sediments has created changes in teh river as high as the big cut-bank near the Castle Is anyone monitoring this area?

    1. Great question Scott. I would LOVE to do some long-term timelapse monitoring farther upstream, but resources are preventing it right now. Would ideally like to mount a camera on the NW Lake Rd bridge when they get that project finished.

      Sounds like a University of Montana group is doing some sediment monitoring too. Not entirely sure where they’re focusing though.

      Thanks for the question!
