Sediment Resuspension System

ISI has been fielding many project inquiries where there is a want for protection against either debris or sediment accumulations around both cone and cylindrical screens. See the below photos of a “sediment resuspension ring” around the base of a cone screen. This particular project has pressurized water available on site which is released from a manually operated valve to resuspend sediment and remove aquatic vegetation that is anticipated to settle around the base of the screen over time. The flow of the river moves the suspended material down stream.
