Technical Developments in Fish Exclusion & Debris Barriers
This presentation will review the developments in materials and technology that have led to successful installations of fish exclusion guidance and collection systems, temperature and algae control curtains, and debris control systems. In this presentation, we will discuss different designs, various components, lessons learned and the planning, materials, engineering, operations and maintenance considerations that all successful projects require.
To illustrate and illuminate, we will provide an introduction to the following projects:
Pickering Nuclear Power Plant, Ontario Power, Ontario, Canada
North Fork Clackamas, Portland General Electric, Portland Oregon
Baker Lakes, Puget Sound Energy, Concrete Washington
Objective and Value:
This presentation should be of interest to researchers, educators, practitioners, biologist, engineers, tribes, and regulators from around the world who are interested in methods to exclude, collect, protect or restore migratory fishes and aquatic species or prevent impingement and entrainment of species at facilities in order to comply with regulations.
