Balfour Beatty completed the Reclamation District 2035 / Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency Joint Intake and Fish Screen Project in May of 2017. Balfour Beatty built a 400-cfs intake fish screen and pump station in the Sacramento River to feed Reclamation District 2035’s agricultural operations and supply drinking water to the cities of Woodland and Davis.
Work on this project also included construction of an outfall structure and demolition of an existing pump station, as well as jacking and boring under train tracks to facilitate conveyance lines to the cities of Woodland and Davis.
The facility replaces a century-old intake that regularly sucked small fish and debris into the system. The new fish screen is lined with 10 stainless-steel mesh screens that draw in water without drawing in fish and other wildlife in the area. The project was featured in Piledriver Magazine, which highlights the impressive pile-driving and in-water construction work completed as part of the project.
