The Loue source (uk)

The Loue river take his source near the village Ouhans. The Loue come from a subterranean river which is simply a Doubs rivers reemergence. This river loses more of 200m of height on less of 20km!

The most incredible is the water green color. Indeed, in 1901, the Pernod factories of Pontarlier city, situated in the Doubs downstream, burned further to a violent thunderstorm. After that, we found tracks of absinthes liquor and green colouring agent in the Loue river. It was proved few weeks after, using colouring agent that a failure was in Doubs downstream to Pontarlier. Since this green color stayed!

La source de la Loue (fr)

La Loue est une rivire prenant sa source tout prs du village de Ouhans. La Loue sort donc dune rivire souterraine qui est tout simplement une rsurgence du Doubs. Cette rivire perd plus de 200m daltitude sur moins de 20km !

Le plus incroyable reste la couleur verte de leau. En effet, en 1901, lusine Pernod de Pontarlier situ sur le Doubs brulait suite un violent orage. Suite cet incendie, on retrouva des traces dabsinthes et de colorant vert dans la Loue. Il a t prouv par lusage dun autre colorant quune faille se trouvait dans la Doubs en Aval de Pontarlier. Depuis, cette couleur verte est reste !
