Long Description:
[F] Le site est constitué d'une couche d'alluvions anciennes (sables et graviers) reposant sur la formation des calcaires de Beauce. L'infiltration des eaux de pluie entraine la dissolution de ces calcaires et provoques des effondrements. Ces derniers sont à l'origine des dolines présentes sur le site de Limère. Ces dolines participent au chemin que suit l'eau à travers le site. Elles ont à la fois un rôle de d'entonnoir et de stockage. Elles récupèrent ainsi les eaux de ruissellement puis les libèrent au travers des fossés ou des rivières souterraines.

[E]
The site consists of a layer of old alluvium (sand and gravel) resting on the formation of limestone Beauce. The infiltration of rain water causes dissolution of limestone and provoke the collapse. These are the origin of sinkholes on the site of Limère.These sinkholes are involved in the path that follows the water through the site. They both have a role in funneling and storage. They recover and runoff and release them through ditches or underground rivers.
