16 CFS Modular Design
Deadpoint Creek is a high gradient stream with seasonally high amounts of organic debris.
The point of diversion is remote and inaccessible during portions of the winter months, making low maintenance operation a must at this location.
In October of 2010, FCA replaced an in-stream flat plate screen with a five section modular Farmers Screen with a maximum flow capacity of 16 CFS.
The new screen system consists of:
- New headgate
- Entrance flume
- 5 section modular Farmers Screen
- Screened water plenum (connects to conveyance pipe)
- Return water plenum (connects to fish return pipe)
- Drain curtain to manage ground water flows
