Columbia River Gets a Vertical Fish Screen

Irrigation canals kept clean of aquatic and urban debris while fish safely turned away

The Columbia River is huge and runs past deserts, towns, major cities and numerous recreation areas. It is a major fishery, as well. So this screen had to protect and exclude fish, handle natural and urban debris, and operate in a constricted space.  

We designed and installed large vertical fish screens with hoods. Now the irrigation canal is clean and clear of river debris. The fish are protected and workers have a lot easier job keeping it that way.
