Hydrologie et aménagements hydrauliques de la Saulx et de l'Ornain (Lorraine)

Abstract : The Saulx-Ornain's river basin situated in the limestoned plateaus of eastern Paris basin (Marne-Meuse interfluve) is divided into several lands where discharges conditions and water resources differ. The water table-river exchanges are determined by the morphological and structural context that establishes underground runoffs between adjoining river basins, characteristic of current stream piracy. Campaigns of measures of the low water discharges show spatial heterogenerous water resources, inherent in limestoned nature of substratum. This spatial disparity of hydrological resources increases control problems of old watermills and the Marne to Rhin ship canal. On the Ornain, ship canal taps influence clearly stream flow and limit reconversion of water mills noted on the Saulx. The Saulx and the Ornain show specific problems of river planning in limestoned country
