Well-heads

Non-potable water


In this land of natural springs, numerous ancient springs were built in the 19th c., based on simple plans and made with noble materials. Some of them have been renovated.


MONCAUP

12 well-heads

At the beginning of the 19th c., Moncaup had about 20 fountains forming a network of drinking water for the villagers. In 1998, the village council decided to preserve 12 of them. There are many walks around Moncaup.
