Eau d'Heure Dams

Two reservoirs were built in this area to supply the River Sambre and Charleroi Canal. Two large dams were set up: Eau d'Heure, a rockfill dike, and Plate Taille, which has a hydroelectric plant. The three fore-dams of Féronval, Ry-Jaune and Falemprise were also built to make the projects easier to carry out, and made it possible to create a new road network. An extensive tourist and sports resort has been built.
