South Fork Gordon Creek

South Fork Gordon Creek

This diversion is a secondary diversion and only supplies water when flows are high enough to divert, typically just a few months out of the year.


South Fork is a high-gradient stream surrounded by conifers and deciduous trees that provide a high level of organic debris. The diversion is very remote and particularly difficult to reach during winter months.

It was failing due to a passive vertical screen that was out of compliance and could not handle high levels of debris.

FCA installed a new screening system, including:

  • a Farmers Screen
  • new headgate
  • new diversion structure that allows for up and down-stream fish passage
  • new connection to pressured pipeline
