In 1983, Puget Sound Power and Light Company (Puget Power) submitted a license application to FERC for the overall White River Project. One of the elements of the project application was to replace the existing fish screens constructed in 1938. In 1985, a technical committee was formed with the state and federal fishery agencies to develop the related facility design parameters. In 1992 design was re-started, and in 1994 the FERC allowed construction to proceed subject to local permitting. The purpose of this paper is to summarize the planning and design of the fish screen facility for the White River Project.
