Regulations that govern the operation of dams and hydraulic systems in general. Since 1995, they have been approved by the prefecture and established after public inquiry. They give rules for the management of structures (minimum flow, reserved flow, water release, etc). Regarding structures for the replenishment of low-water flow (in normal and crisis situation), they must determine how water resources will be shared between water abstractions and the flow rate maintained in streams.
