Motte

Environment

In 1998, six months after I bought my house, it got flooded after 14 hours of uninterrupted heavy rainfall. The little river the Motte, running 100 meters next to my house, couldn't bear all the water and set the neighbourhood blank. Though the damage was minimal - only my cellar got submerged, I became very suspicious after some days of rain.


Luckily I found out about this site which measures the heigh of the nearby river, the Motte. Even a little graph, depicting the situation for the past days, is plotted !
