Saskatchewan fish catch a break

when International Water Screens catches debris

A water district in Saskatchewan, Canada needed to prevent fish and debris from entering an irrigation canal off a reservoir. We designed this screen taking into account water velocity, screen speed and mesh size so fish aren’t harmed.

We engineered this screen to work with a local engineering firm’s canal design and built it with local contractors. Then we traveled to Saskatchewan to train them on using it.

We designed this screen to a local engineering firm’s specs. A local contractor installed it. The local fish feel good about it.
