As the water continues south, it passes through the Skinner Fish Facility, built between 1966-1970. Here, a giant screen helps protect fish by keeping them away from the pumps that lift water into the California Aqueduct. An average of 15 million fish a year are captured and returned to the Delta (via oxygenated tank trucks).
