Oregon Screen and Passage Issues: The Reality


Funding Programs-Statewide

  • ODFW Cost Share Program

    • Fish Screens

    • 60/40 cost share – 60% we pay, 40% water user

    • Voluntary - Cost share eligible up to $75,000

    • Upon completion, water user takes over minor maintenance activities for under 30 CFS diversions and both minor and major maintenance activities for over 30 CFS diversions

    • Fish Passage

    • 60/40 cost share – 60% we pay, 40% water user

    • Voluntary - Cost share eligible up to $75,000

    • Upon completion, water user takes over minor and major maintenance activities

    • Some alterations, modifications, or cumulative changes to existing diversions require addition of fish passage (Trigger events)

  • ODFW Surcharge

    • Surcharge on Fishing Licenses

    • Maintenance for fish screens

    • Money gets spread thinner as new cost share projects are installed

  • Fish Screen Tax Credit

    • Based on 50% of eligible expenses up to $5,000


Funding Programs-Area Specific

  • Bonneville Power Adminstration (BPA)

    • Currently funds projects in the John Day, Umatilla, and Walla Walla River Subbasins through the John Day Screen Shop

    • Can fund screen, passage and stream habitat improvement projects as they relate to fish passage.

  • Mitchell Act (NOAA)

    • Columbia River Basin Programs

      • Enterprise Screen Shop

      • John Day Screen Shop

      • The Dalles Screen Shop

    • Due to current funding levels, has only been used for maintenance, though this money is stretched thinner as new projects are added every year.


Other Funding and Partners

  • Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB)

  • Fisheries Restoration Irrigation Mitigation Act (FRIMA)

  • US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Partners Program

  • Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS)

  • Bureau of Reclamation (USBR)

  • US Forest Service (USFS)

  • Oregon Water Resource Dept. (OWRD)

  • Local Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Watershed Councils

  • Numerous Conservation Groups

  • Waterusers

  • Mitigation


The Goal


The Problems

  • Mother Nature (Geomorphology, Climate,etc.)

  • Project Maintenance

  • Project Placement, Size and Type

  • Irrigation Infrastructure


All wrapped into One Big Problem!


Some Solutions!

  • Knowing your site

  • Periodic Maintenance

  • Wateruser Cooperation

  • Partner Cooperation

  • There is no “one size (or type) fits all.”

    • No project will perfectly fit a site.

  • Expect a measure of disappointment, which should not be viewed failure.

    • No one can account for the variability of every site.

  • Appreciate the little things

    • Overall completion cost (future maintenance)

    • Keep it simple!

      • Cost and length of time to repair.

  • When in doubt, remember, no one knows your area as well as you.

What I have learned in 15 years in Screening and Passage


In the end, we can only do our best and not expect to resolve all of the issues
