Idaho Water District’s New Hydroelectric Project

This project near Twin Falls was installed on a chilly day.

This Irrigation District north of Twin Falls installed a new run of the river hydroelectric facility. In order to protect their new turbines, they installed this Traveling Water Screening System. The majority of debris consists of weeds, tumbleweeds, aquatic plants and urban debris. 

The 5 screens at this location drop debris on a 60’ long conveyor. The conveyor carries the debris to an elevating conveyor which allows the debris to be collected in a large pile, or in a trailer or dumpster for easy removal.

This project included:

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