The Meuse can be a fast flowing river. Near every lock there's a correspondong weir that is used to control the height and flow of the water. The Meuse in Belgium is controlled hydraulically. In France they still use ancient 'needle' weirs, bits of 2"x2"wood that are manually put in or taken out across the river as needed. Dangerous work.
