The Saïsses Aqueduct
1688/1689. Designed by Vauban, built by Colin and Launay. Here the canal was dug on a hillside. The excavation material was thrown up on the towpath and acted as a dyke. In 1715 and 1766, heavy rains caused cracks and desolation downstream from the aqueduct. The dam had to be reinforced and lined.]
