16 CFS Modular Design

Deadpoint Creek

Deadpoint Creek

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
