How It Works…
The Farmers Screen™ uses hydraulics to remove debris and protect fish. It has no moving parts and does not require power to operate.
Water moves over the horizontal screen material at a relatively high velocity and moves through the screen material at a very low velocity. This velocity combination carries fish and debris over the screen and back to the source with no clogging. The resulting screened water is carried to irrigators via pressurized pipe or canal.

Custom screen design
Installed by Farmers Irrigation District in Hood River Oregon, this screen supplies water to farmers and multiple hydro-power generation facilities. This project included addressing a wide range of flow rates, a high sediment load, and the presence of endangered species. A custom screen design was installed in 2002. As a result, FID has realized increased hydro-power revenue and a reduction in debris load of up to 95% with a corresponding decrease in operation and maintenance costs.
FCA has completed many installations. We will be launching more here soon.

This screen has worked flawlessly….I’m very pleased with it. We’ve used a lot of fish hatchery screens over the last 35 years, and this one by far is the most productive and trouble free. Good job, FCA.
It was like night and day – actually quite a dramatic change with things being a lot less labor-intensive. During the first big rain storm after the install, I actually woke up a couple of times in the night because I thought our alarm system must have been broken.
A perfect ﬁt … FCA has done a wonderful job on this screen, and I can’t say enough good about the organization.
