A wash house put into service in 1876
The wash house of Saint-Jeannet in the Alpes-Maritimes department is part of a municipal project of the end of the 19th century to supply the village with drinking water. In the 1870s, the sources of Font-du-Bœuf, Nouvelle, and Lavoirs were tapped and united in a 3,448 ft (1,051 m) long covered canal. The pumping of their water using a turbine-powered lifting machine operated by a waterfall allowed the putting into service of a public wash house and five fountains in Saint-Jeannet on May 7, 1876.
