The construction of the Canal Saint-Martin was ordered by Napoleon I in 1802, in order to create an artificial waterway for supplying Paris with fresh water to support a growing population and to help avoid diseases such as dysentery and cholera. Canal Saint-Martin is a 4.5 km long canal in Paris connecting the Canal de l'Ourcq to the river Seine. The Canal is frequently used as a film scene. It was here that Amélie Poulin was throwing rocks in the water in the movie Le Fabuleux Destin.
