The people of the Saône in Burgundy are mariners, lock keepers, farmers, who live or fish along the riverbanks are specific to this part of France.
Not so long ago, little ports like Ouroux, Ormes or Uchizy or districts in towns like Chalon, Tournus, Mâcon, or even entire towns like St Jean de Losne or Verdun, were exclusively populated by these people. They had their own language, spoken down the whole length of the river, a language very different from the local «patois».
Today the river has changed radically, and with it, the lives of its people. Never the less, every February or March the Saône swells several kilometres in width: the annual flood.
Each year the people of the Saône watch anxiously as the water rises. They wonder if they are safe behind the dykes built in the14th century and known to have collapsed many times since.
The last time was in March 2001 and climatologists predict drought, heat waves and floods in the future.
