Tracy B. Vermeyen. 2009. "Pumping Plant and Fish Screen Project Hydraulics: Red Bluff Pumping Plant Fish Screen Hydraulic Model Study (1:42 Scale)". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number PAP-988.

Abstract: This memorandum contains information on performance results of a 1:42 scale hydraulic model of the proposed Red Bluff Pumping Plant positive barrier fish screen. Reclamation’s Hydraulic Investigations and Laboratory Services Group at the Technical Service Center constructed a physical model of the fish screen and pumping plant forebay in its Denver laboratory. The proposed 2,500 ft3/sec pumping plant and 1,100-ft-long fish screen is located on the west bank of the Sacramento River approximately 1,500 ft upstream from the existing Red Bluff Diversion Dam. The fish screen is required to comply with NMFS screen performance criteria for on-river fish screens. The screen criteria require that the approach flow velocity perpendicular to the screen face not exceed 0.33 ft/sec.
