Admin Measure Summary
CDFW prioritizes unscreened diversions in the Delta for remediation.
There are around 3,000 unscreened water diversions operating throughout the entire Delta watershed. The majority of these diversions are small agricultural intake pipes, however some in-Delta water diversions may impact juvenile fish migration and survival.
CDFW maintains and updates lists of priority barriers, and collects field data to inform its prioritization of remaining unscreened diversions in the Delta (Remediation of unscreened diversions tracked in PM 4.13)
