Discover Tuilières Dam And Its Fish Lift

Discover Tuilières Dam And Its Fish Lift

Following yesterday's article (https://goo.gl/1pMPJT), today, I just want to talk a bit about this unusual site.
Built in 1909, the Tuilières Dam is one of the oldest hydroelectric Dam in Dordogne. With it's 31m tall, it's quite impressive.

To help migrating fish like salmon and sturgeon to make their way upstream and reproduce, a fish lift has been set up with an observation window where you can see them going through. It captures the fish in a tank and then rises to discharge them on the other side of the dam! Simple and effective!

You can learn more about it by visiting the Visitor Centre.

Family Walk Near Bergerac

This morning, we decided to go for a walk along the Grand-Salvette Dam (built in 1839 and improved over the years in 1966, 1984 and 2010).

It's a pleasant walk along the Dordogne river from the port to the dam… and up to Prigonrieux for the braviest…
