ODFW Fish Screening Task Force to meet in Burns June 19

June 9, 2014

SALEM, Ore. - Oregon's Fish Screening Task Force will meet Thursday, June 19 in Burns. The meeting will take place at the Aging and People with Disabilities Conference Room, 809 W Jackson St, Burns, OR 97720.

The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the agenda includes an update on projects and activities conducted throughout Oregon. The same day, there will be a half-day field trip to look at fish screen projects in the area. The field trip will leave at 12:30 PM. The public will need to provide their own transportation if attending the field trip.

The ODFW Fish Screening Program coordinates a cost share program for the installation of screens at water diversions. Fish screens prevent the loss of fish when water is used for irrigation, municipal, hydroelectric or other beneficial purposes. 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 Pete Baki, Statewide Fish Screening Coordinator, at 503-947-6217.
