This project replaced an existing non-criteria screen, addressing issues of irrigation and sediment and debris.
At the headgate, the diverted water enters a 300-foot pipeline that delivers water to the screen structure.
The Farmers Screen at this site typically draws 1 CFS of water into the irrigation system. The screened water enters a pipeline that delivers water to orchards and other agricultural uses in Dee, Oregon.
The cleaning water returns to Tony Creek via an open natural channel.
