Use a hydraulic pump to drive a hydraulic
 cylinder or pitman arm to move screen
 cleaning components.
                Advantages
   Safety
   Reliability
   Electricity Not Required
   Power Transmission Flexibility
            Disadvantages
 Higher Cost for Smaller Screens
 Regular Maintenance
 Compound Driving System
          Breitenbush Screen
 Construction Completed Jan, 2006
 Screened Flow is 35cfs
 Water is primarily for hydroelectric with
  some domestic water use
 Electrically driven hydraulic system
 Designed by Mike Lambert (ODFW) &
  Conrad Zevely (Breitenbush Staff)
 Hydraulics move gang wiper
              Lost & Boulder
   Construction Completed in November, 2005
   Screened Flow is 30 cfs
   Water is primarily used for irrigation
