Fruitvale

The Fruitvale canal screen (approximately 100 cfs) is located on the right bank of the Naches River near Yakima, Washington. The facility now consists of two vertical flat plate screen panels, each 4.5 feet high by 14 feet long. The screen panels are constructed of perforated stainless steel with 3/32-inch diameter holes spaced on 5/32-inch centers. Control baffles installed immediately downstream of these panels allow flows to be regulated to maintain uniform approach velocities.

A mechanical cleaning brush moves back and forth over the length of the screen to keep the screen free of debris.

The bypass entrance channel is a full-depth, 18-inch wide rectangular channel that is 10 feet long. An adjustable weir gate at the end of this channel controls flows that then drop into 3-foot wide by 9-foot long downwell. Bypass flows are then conveyed to the Naches River through a 18-inch diameter PVC pipe for 70 feet to the river.
