ODFW Fish Screening Task Force to meet in Salem

 
September 22, 2009

 

SALEM, Ore. - Oregon's Fish Screening Task Force will meet on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Phoenix Inn Suites, 1590 Weston Ct. NE in Salem. 

The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the agenda includes an update on the state fish screening program, projects completed and planned by The Dalles screen shop, and a summary of a past diversion inventory project.  The meeting is open to the public.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Fish Screening Program coordinates a cost share program for the installation of screens at water diversions. Water users voluntarily working with ODFW to install fish screens continue to be the foundation of this successful program.

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 fish bearing water body.

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 ODFW 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 Alan Ritchey, Statewide Fish Screening Coordinator, at 503-947-6229.
