The Farmers Irrigation District developed a screen technology that keeps fish from entering irrigation and hydroelectric canals. The Farmers Screen is a horizontal, flat-plate diversion screen that harmlessly moves fish over the screen and back to the river while safely diverting water for irrigation and hydroelectric use. The Farmers Screen is gaining widespread acceptance by natural resource agencies, farmers, and power producers alike. The Farmers Screen technology is licensed to a non-profit group called FCA with the condition that money from screen sales be used for the benefit of fish, farms and families.
