Derby Dam Fish Screen Groundbreaking september 11, 2019

This day is 100 years in the making. The fish screen will allow this iconic species to travel beyond Derby Dam, from Pyramid Lake to their spawning grounds, for the first time in more than a century.

Seeing our technology help to realize the vision shared by Reclamation, the Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Pyramid Lake Paiute tribe to improve fish movement on the Truckee River is the reason we invented it in the first place.

Julie Davies O'Shea, FCA Executive Director

It’s a milestone in the history of Reclamation. A critical investment in modernizing our infrastructure to provide reliable water supplies in an environmentally sound manner.
