For more than two decades, water management entities in the Sacramento Valley have engaged in an aggressive effort to construct fish screens at all of the high priority diversions identified by state and federal fishery agencies. As a result, all but two of the high-priority diversions have been screened. The following infographic helps describe the program. There have also been siphons and other barriers built at key locations in the Sacramento Valley to help assure that salmon stay in the rivers and streams and are able to successfully migrate up and down the rivers.
