The law of July 7, 1881 declared the construction of the Manosque canal to be in the public interest, and the acquisition of the land and the work were carried out by the State between 1881 and 1926 at the request of Oswald Bouteille.
The Manosque canal was definitively handed over to the ASCM in 1926.
The Association Syndicale du Canal de Manosque (ASCM), created by the decree of December 8, 1892, is a local public institution whose mission is to operate, maintain and modernize the raw water supply works for which it is responsible. These works are composed of a 53 km master canal, going from the Escale dam in Châteaux-Arnoux to the Corbières ravine, as well as 179 km of a secondary network of gullies also called filioles. Thus, the members, owners of plots of land committed within the ASCM, can be served with raw water, if they proceed to the connection to the network, for the watering of pleasure gardens, vegetable gardens or crops. The ASCM also delivers, through its main canal, raw water to other structures, at the level of the extraction points of their own networks, such as
- The ARKEMA Saint-Auban plant for fire fighting
- The City of Peyruis for fire fighting and the supply of raw water to 215 Peyruis households
- The Association Syndicale Autorisée des Iles de la Palun et des Iscles de la Durance for the supply of the Durance water table,
- The Société du Canal de Provence for the supply of raw water to its own customers.
Opening period (s)From 01/01 to 31/12, daily.
