Diversions from rivers must be protected from negative effects on migratory and non-migratory fish species. Diversions to canals often have to be screened to prevent removal and loss of fish. The fish screen facilities must meet regulatory agency requirements concerning approach conditions, velocities, screening material, and facility configuration. The fish screens may be placed at the entrance to the canal or within the canal. This paper includes an example of a fish screen structure placed in the canal downstream from the diversion from the river. The fish separated by the screens are bypassed back safely to the river.
