La Motte-du-Caire (France), durance catchment. Photograph taken in June 1998. The Saignon dam reservoir (1961, H = 17 m, volum: 1.8 E+5 m3) became fully-silted in less than 2 years despite upstream check dams. View from the right bank of the dam, looking upstream. The reservoir is located in a black marl catchment (3.5 km2 area).
