Eight Screens for California Aqueduct

When you move a lot of water, you need a large screen array.


The Berrenda Mesa Water Districts’ California Aqueduct pumping station had a massive debris problem, causing high labor costs, injuries and endless headaches — until they contacted International Water Screens. We engineered and installed a large array of moss removal screens.

Now: Labor issues resolved, no racks to clean. Pump efficiencies have improved to the point where the project cost was paid —in less than 6 months — by reduced energy use. Now they’re clean and green.


This project included:

  • Traveling Screen(s)
  • Elevator
  • Pump
  • Trash Container
  • Control Panel
  • Head Loss Level Reader
  • Filter
  • Automatic Flash Filter
  • Conveyor
