In October of 2010, FCA replaced an in-stream flat plate screen with a five section modular Farmers Screen with a maximum flow capacity of 16 CFS.
The new screen system consists of:
The Deadpoint Creek site is remote, and access is difficult in the winter.
Sandbags isolate stream from work area.
Small footprint for the install made working conditions pretty tight during install.
Experienced contractor and modular screen design made for a smooth install.
The installation process took only a few days.
Crews working during the install.
Clean site one week after install.
Source creek sits parallel to screen.
Deadpoint Creek carries heavy loads of leaves from deciduous trees, the Farmers Screen screens this effectively with no moving parts.
