Geocache Description:





Déversoir de Saint Julien les Villas




FR : Au Xème siècle, la population troyenne augmentant (elle fut même à l’époque médiévale la sixième ville de France), il fallu creuser de nombreux canaux afin d’alimenter la nouvelle cité médiévale. La dérivation, régulée par des vannes tranchines, s’opéra en amont de la ville de sorte que la Seine fut divisée en deux bras, la vieille Seine, lit naturel du fleuve qui contourne Troyes, et la Seine urbaine, réseau complexe de canaux alimentant la ville. En 1865, les vannes sont remplacées par le déversoir de Saint Julien, tel que nous le connaissons aujourd’hui.

GB : Saint Julien les Villas’s Spillway
In the 10th century, the population of Troyes was on the increase (it was the sixth-largest city in France as far back as the mediaeval era) and a number of canals were dug to supply the new mediaeval city. The branch was regulated by a series of sluice gates located upstream of the city, dividing the Seine into two sections, the old Seine (the natural course of the river that bypasses Troyes) and the "urban" Seine, a complex network of canals that supply the city. In 1865, the sluice gates were replaced by the St Julien spillway, as it is known today.
