  • Installation Date: October 2010

This Farmers Screen project addresses the following issues:

The Deadpoint Creek modular Farmers Screen

Farmers Irrigation District diverts water from Deadpoint Creek (a tributary to the West Fork of the Hood River) for both irrigation and hydropower production. 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

Project Description: Farmers Irrigation District diverts water from Deadpoint Creek (a tributary to the West Fork of the Hood River) for both irrigation and hydropower production. 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.

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. The diversion is monitored using telemetry. Low maintenance operation is a must at this site due to the remote location.
