One of the historic marker plaques in Provo Canyon.

Riverfront Office Property – Screening Structure.

A screening structure once stood across the river.  This building was manned 24 hours a day.  The main road up Provo Canyon passed this site and went under the flume.

In 1952, the wooden flume was replaced with a steel pipeline.  A flow-measuring structure and sand traps were connected to the building.  Today’s automated trash-rakes at the diversion remove debris, eliminating the need for this building and 24-hour occupancy.
