Derby Dam Fish Screen

Construction is ahead of schedule.

Installation of the screens began in mid June. The screen installations will occur one at a time, with two crews of 4-5 people: one crew will focus on layout of materials and installation of the iron while the other will work on framing. The expectation is that work on all five screen installs will be completed by mid-July.
