Les apports solides de l'Arve dans le Rhône genevois
The solids alluvial deposits from the river Arve into the Geneva's Rhône
The dammings on the Rhône, downstream the lake of Geneva, are in serious danger of obturation, owing to solids alluvial deposits from the river Arve. Flushings regulary practiced, have enabled to maintain the Rhône channel close to its natural state. A wide exploitation retrospective over several tens of years is represented for the dammings of: Chèvres (1896-1942), Verbois (1942-1987), Chancy-Pougny (1924-1987).
