Third Lyons built aqueduct, it measured 70 km in length, and arrived at the district Fourvière in the current 5th district of Lyon .

Your help is welcome!Falls [ change | modify the code ]The ideal average slope was located around 1.5 mm / m, that is to say 1.5 ‰. In addition, the speed of the water was likely to exceed 1 m / s and deteriorate its erosive action by the tunnel. Or aqueduct Brévenne started from a fairly high altitude; its average gradient was 5 ‰ . It was therefore essential to the Romans to break the slope. The chosen solution was to build courts reaches horizontal or low slope, separated by vertical drops made in the wells. These falls were about 2.3 meters to 2.5 meters. Often, many falls, forming a true hydraulic staircase, succeeded as Chevinay , where the water falls from 87 meters just 300 meters away .Flow [ edit | edit the code ]Camille Germain Montauzan believes his speed was the most important of the four works supplying Lyon (28 000 m 3 a day, 324 L / s) , which is now considered the theoretical throughput of the aqueduct . However, John Burdy is more reserved and concedes to work as a discharge of 10 000 m3 per day (115 L / s) in this book , .Pictures [ change | modify the code ]The aqueduct Brévenne to CourzieuThe aqueduct Brévenne in Aqueduct Park in Dardilly .Remains of bridge-siphon boardwalk, Ecully.bridge-siphon reconstitution of boards by Mr. Gabut.References [ change | modify the code ]↑ Camille Germain Montauzan 1908 , "Chapter II - § III. - From Tiberius to Flavian.
