fish screens

A unifying technology

Farmers need water to grow crops. The way they get this water is to divert it from streams, lakes or rivers and transport it to their farms.

Fish screens are a critical technology for irrigators. They help deliver consistent water by removing debris and allowing fish to bypass the intake. This is especially important for irrigators who are diverting water inhabited by threatened fish species.

There are 150,000 unscreened diversions in the Northwest alone. With each fish screen installation, FCA protects thousands of fish and saves farmers thousands of dollars in annual operating costs.
