Kelley - Lowry

The Kelley Lowry diversion (approximately 40-50 cfs) is located on the left bank of the Naches River (north channel) near Naches, Washington. The current Kelley Lowry fishscreen facility (improved during the 1993/94-construction period) replaces the screens originally placed at each ditch and consolidates them into one facility upstream of the separation of the two ditches.

The facility now consists of two rotary drum screens, each 4 feet in diameter by 12 feet long. The drum screens are constructed of 4.5-12 woven wire mesh (1/8-inch openings).

The bypass entrance channel is a full-depth, 18-inch wide rectangular channel that is 10.5 feet long. An adjustable weir gate at the end of this channel controls flows that then drop into a 3-foot wide by 8-foot long downwell. Bypass flows are then conveyed to the Naches River through a ~15-inch diameter PVC pipe for 5 feet to the river.
