fish screen validation

HydroScientific West has a variety of instruments and field strategies to validate fish screen water velocities. Our team is prepared to execute measurements for almost all structures and in the most challenging of environments. Data collection, processing, and reporting adhere to NOAA measurement protocols to ensure valid and quality data. Validation reports include impactful graphics, charts, and spreadsheets that make great additions to end user presentations and comprehensive reports. Equipment used for this service can include:

  • Flow Tracker Handheld ADV (Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter)
  • Argonaut ADV
Above is an example of an interactive graphic where each panel is partitioned into a grid. This strategy utilizes a series of systematic single point measurements to produce a velocity map which can be used to effectively evaluate fish screen performance.
