Evretou Overflows

Once again Evretou Reservoir has overflowed. We drove to see the action, and marvel as the vegetable waste in the water slowly succumbed to the inevitable force of gravity and cascade down the chute.

Evretou is unsual in that it's overflow is in a different location to the actual dam. Apparently, this is down to Earthquake damage in previous years. The dam became unsafe so they built  an overflow away from it at a lower level, or so I have been told.

To get to the overflow is a bit of an adventure, though I am happy to say they have made the road towards it a bit more robust in the last year. Be warned though, that when you get there, it is very muddy indeed.
