Rhône Purge 2012

The june 2012 purge revealed the Rhône riverbed. The purge was performed to clean the sediment upstream the Verbois dam. The purge moves the greatest amount of sediment. This higher force results in the removal of sediment and other material from the riverbed and banks of the river, locally causing erosion.
