The second (Briare/Nevers) division of the canal latéral à la Loire is essentially supplied with water by the Lorraine channel that allows wastewater derived Allier to be conducted on the main canal. Excavated from 1835 to 1841, the channel can provide two cubic meters of water per second. In addition to his role as food, the channel of the Lorraine was also used as waterway junction linking the Allier in the channel for the transport of sand from the Bec d'Allier.In 1846, the channel is traversed by 643 ships. Today, it retains more than a food role.
