Receives $17,500 Prize
The Bureau of Reclamation launched a prize competition seeking innovative methods to exclude fish from water diversions and intakes. Of the 38 potential solutions received, six winners will share a total prize pool of $75,000. The competition addressed the limitations in current technology to exclude certain fish species and size classes in a cost-effective manner.
The second of the top placing solutions was submitted by Benjamin Mater of Alden Research Laboratory, Fort Collins, Colorado, who proposed using a biometric-informed screen shape to minimize debris clogging and entrainment of fish eggs and larvae. The top two solutions will receive $17,500 each.
