This project involved removal of an existing fish screen, removal of a no longer used diversion structure, and construction of a new horizontal Farmers Screen with a new fish return.
The diversion at this creek had a structure that was no longer used and a fish screen that was costly and ineffective. The presence of endangered species made fish protection a key priority for the irrigation district.
The install of a modular Farmers Screen was successful in spite of close working quarters and in-water construction. A new fish-return system ensures the delivery of endangered species back to North Green Point Creek.
