    The weir at Lavours leads to the northern tip of the actually artificial island "Île Tournier". This was created when a canal was created for shipping traffic in addition to the natural course of the Rhone. As a consequence, the current flow of the so-called "vieux Rhône" (the old Rhone) is only about five to ten percent of the original water volume.
