The door and the pavilions of entrance to the convent of la chartreuse, destroyed but soon submerged, are reconstructed in height on the right bank of the Ain. The dam and the power plant were completed at the beginning of 1968. A deduction of 600 million m3 of water (the third in France) is created, forming a 1600 hectare lake, 35 km long, 300 m wide on average, partially equipped for leisure.
