Threatening disaster or mastered risk ? A geo- historical approach of flood risk in urban area. Example of Mulhouse (France)

Abstract : The Prevention Plan against Flood Risks in the Ill Basin reveals that the city of Mulhouse (France) is almost entirely free from flood nuisance. This situation appears to result from the building of an important diversion canal for the Ill river during the second half of the 19th century. To improve the undeniable efficiency of the canal, we adopt a historical and geographical perspective at different scales in order to place the devastating floods as well as the urban and river system of protection in a broader context. Those results proceed from the studies carried out within the framework of the French-German program TRANSRISK, financed by the ANR and the DFG.
