Geocache Description:

[FR] au pied / [ENG] close the ground

[FR] La citerne a été installée dans les années 50. Auparavant il n'y avait pas l'eau courante dans le village. Et seule la fontaine communale de la place permettait l'alimentation en eau. La citerne construite en béton a permis de retenir les eaux de la source et d'alimenter les villageois. Mais à partir des années 80 la population estivale a considérablement compliqué l'approvisionnement, de sorte que la seule source ne suffisait plus. La mairie de Comps, dont Jabron est un hameau, a procédé aux travaux de captage du Jabron. Ainsi les problemes de rationnement et de coupures ont disparu depuis le milieu des années 90. En contre partie, le niveau d'etiage du Jabron a été divisé par deux. Il est désormais régulier de la voir completement asséché en été.

 [ENG] The tank was installed in the 50s. Previously there was no running water in the village. And only the communal fountain instead allowed the water supply. The tank constructed of concrete allowed to retain water spring and feed the villagers. But the summer population during 80's has greatly complicated the supply, so the only spring was not enough. The mayor of Comps, which Jabron is a hamlet, made ​​the work of capture Jabron river. Thus the problems of rationing and cuts have disappeared since the mid 90's. In against part, the level of low water Jabron was halved. It is now scheduled to see completely dry in summer.
