This is a modular Farmers Screen sized for up to 3.25 CFS that was installed on Camp Creek near Hood River, Oregon in 2012. Camp Creek is a high gradient tributary to the West Fork of the Hood River. This system has stable flows with high levels of organic debris in the spring and the fall.
This diversion was previously unscreened and featured a stream spanning concrete dam that blocked passage year round. The new diversion structure and Farmers Screen system provides passage, fish protection, and clean screened water to the irrigators.
This project was the first to include a re-designed fish return flume which provides a more efficient and lower maintenance method for getting fish, debris, and by-pass flows back to the stream.
