Badger Creek Horizontal Fish Screen and Vertical Fish Ladder Project - Aquatic Contracting

Near The Dalles, OR

AC was contracted by the FCA to install a large horizontal fish screen and a vertical fish ladder to eliminate fish entrapment, improve fish passage, and assist the Badger Creek Improvement District with their conservation goals. Located within the Badger Creek Wilderness, construction access was extremely limited, and the project site was miles from the nearest road. All materials and equipment were mobilized 3 miles up the district’s narrow irrigation ditch to the proposed screen location. AC installed the large, modular, prefabricated steel fish ladder in segments, making modifications to the concrete headgate for the specified fishway entrance and exit. AC then installed the dual 80-foot long horizontal fish screen in segments behind the concrete headgate. FCA’s screen is designed to be self-cleaning and is pre-fabricated, allowing for both ease of installation and minimal maintenance.
