  • Initial Questionnaire:  this document is used to gather initial information that will allow FCA staff to determine if a site has the right characteristics to warrant a site visit.
  • Site Visit Guide:  these documents allow either FCA staff or a Project Manager to gather more detailed information to determine if a Farmers Screen will work for the site or if another technology is more appropriate.
  • Survey Guide:  this guide provides instructions for a surveyor so that the right data is collected to allow for project design and implementation.
