FWA Fish Screen Program
Since 1996 Family Water Alliance (FWA) has been the program manager in cooperation with several state and federal agencies, and private contributors, in spearheading research, development and installation of fish screens on small agricultural diversions. This good-faith effort has been of key importance in obtaining a common sense application of the Endangered Species Act with regard to Sacramento and Feather River diversions. Family Water Alliance has a proven track record regarding the instillation of small fish screens. To date, FWA has installed 45 successful fish screens using the most innovative screen technology.
