  • 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)

What i have learned in 15 years in screening and passage

  • 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.
