History of the installation :

This needle weir was built between 1874 and 1880, when the river Meuse was canalised. In 1920, it was totally dismantled and re-built. Downstream of Verdun, it controls the reservoir water retention in the crossing of the agglomeration. It has the particularity (amongst the Meuse weirs) of being equipped with a needle handling system. This system facilitates needle transportation when the installation is manoeuvred.
