Feather River Restoration I

Restoration Stories

The City of Yuba City completed construction of a fish screen on the City’s diversion on the Feather River in 2014. The old 40-year-old water intake structure was the largest unscreened structure on the Feather River and the last to adopt some sort of mitigation for impact to spring- and fall-run Chinook salmon and steelhead. The City upgraded the water intake structure and added fish screens to prevent fish from being sucked into or trapped against the pipes. © Appeal-Democrat
