SALEM, Ore. - Oregon's Fish Screening Task Force will meet April 11 at ODFW’s Salem headquarters, 3406 Cherry Ave NE, to discuss statewide projects.  

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and the agenda includes an overview of the statewide program, program status, and project updates. The meeting is open to the public as is a tour of the Lacomb Irrigation District fish screen from 2:15-5:15 p.m.  To join the tour, meet at ODFW’s Salem headquarters at 2:15 p.m.  Members of the public will need to provide their own transportation.

Fish screens prevent the loss of fish when water is used for irrigation, municipal, hydroelectric or other beneficial purposes. They are a crucial part of any system that diverts water from a public water body.

The ODFW Fish Screening and Passage Program coordinates a cost share program for installation of screens at water diversions.

The Task Force is appointed by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission and its members represent agricultural, fisheries and public interests.   It meets several times a year to advise the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on fish screening policies and issues.

Reasonable accommodations are provided as needed for individuals requesting assistive hearing devices, sign language interpreters or large-print materials.  Individuals needing these types of accommodations may call the Information and Education Division at 800-720-6339 or 503-947-6002 at least 24 hours before the meeting.  For more information, call Ray Hartlerode, Fish Screening & Passage Program Manager, at 503-947-6215.
