Le déversoir des Balmes Viennoises est l'exutoire du Canal de Jonage. Placé en amont du réservoir du Grand Large il garantit l'évacuation des eaux en cas de crue.
Il a donc une triple fonction :
1°) Il protège le barrage de Jons en amont
2°) Il assure la régulation du niveau du réservoir du Grand Large.
3°) Il protège le barrage de Cusset en aval du réservoir.

Venez découvrir cet ouvrage tout particulier consititué de 5 arches circulaires à peine 50 cm au dessus du niveau du canal.
