15 cfs with 1.75 mm slots
ISI CP96-24 Propeller Cone Screen
Year Installed:

Client: Eldorado Irrigation District

Location: Alder Creek, Kyburz, CA

Background: FERC required that EID protect juvenile fish by providing a self cleaning screen at this powerplant intake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The existing site is very remote, subject to heavy debris loads, and has no power available

Solution: ISI is provided a cone screen to adapt to this shallow intake. The project components were flown in via helicopter in 2010. A propeller drive cleaning system is used to keep the screen free of debris when the diversion is operating.
