La Vienne, rivière affluente de la Loire provoque le plu souvent des inondations de plaine c'est-à-dire des inondations qui durent généralement quelques jours et qui font suite au débordement lent et progressif du cours d'eau.
Au pied du Pont Neuf, en descendant l'escalier jusqu'au bord de la Vienne, on peut remarquer une pierre en granite gravée de deux repères de crues partiellement effacées
12 MAR? 1??? 2,5m (Probablement 12 mars 1912)

The Vienne, an affluent river of the Loire, often causes floods of plain, that is to say, floods that usually last a few days and that follow the slow and gradual overflow of the watercourse.
At the foot of the Pont Neuf, down the stairs to the edge of the Vienne, one can notice a granite engraved stone with two marks of partially erased floods
