Downstream view of the screen with the initial water run.

This diversion on Wolf Creek is located just inside the Malheur National Forest.  Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) crew installed this project.


A rock diversion structure directs flow into the diversion.  The diverted water flows through a head gate, down the ditch a short distance to the two section modular Farmers Screen unit.  The screened water continues down the open ditch, while the cleaning water returns to Wolf Creek via a pipe.  This screen has a maximum capacity of 4 CFS.

This project was a collaboration between the U.S. Forest Service, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife John Day Screen Shop, FCA, and the Van Drewsey Grazing Association.
