This paper emphasizes the importance of the bypass system in protecting juvenile fish at screen facilities. Screen/bypass layouts, juvenile behavior, and hydraulic considerations are addressed, followed by a discussion of key elements of the bypass design. Principles covered in this paper can be employed in the design of screen and bypass facilities of all sizes.
