They were intended to discharging the side of the city to the north, the water of the Loire, this allowed the navigability of the river in all seasons and facilitated access to docks. The products separated Great Loire north of Little Loire south.
Construction products has led over time to silting on the Little Loire, the vegetation is gradually installed.
