Canal du Midi

The Canal du Midi is a special structure which makes a river connection through the South of France from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. A big problem concerning this structure was its ridge. Around 1700 the construction of this structure started where there was water supply to a high point of the ridge. To ensure that there was always water in the canal, almost 100 locks were  built, sometimes as many as 9 in direct succession because of a height difference of 20m.
