    The aqueducts, remains of which can still be seen near the Barbegal mill, are a diversion of the 'De Caperon', aqueduct which channelled water from the southern slope of the Alpilles. The construction techniques used for the section before the mill differ from those observed on the route of the Caparon aqueduct.
