River Release intake
trash rack with above normal amount of trash. The diagonal pipe
is the vacuum breaker downstream of the gate. The river is about
2.5 feet lower than normal at this time. Normally it is kept up
for power maximization.
Release on the Right Dam Abuttment
The river release intake
gate is shown with water at normal level. The new cut-off wall is
shown at the top of the old right hand overflow section. The barge
is used to float collected debris back to the channel and to give
a working platform for clearing debris (logs) from the the diversion
intake (not shown to the left) that are too large for the rake.
View of Trash Rack
This is the river release
intake with a trash rack with about a 6" spacing between the
bars. It is usually called a Grizzly in California when this coarse.
A term left over from mining equipment days. Despite appearances
and some minor surface frost damage all equipment is in good condition.
Water is abnormally low in this picture.
