The Bièvre once threw itself into the Seine at height from the Gare d'Austerlitz after a 33 km route through Essonne, Hauts-de-Seine and Val-de-Marne. It entered Paris at the Poterne des Peupliers and crossed the 13th and 5th arrondissements.

Exploited since the Middle Ages by sleuthers, launderers, weavers and dyers, this watercourse which over the centuries has become an unhealthy and pestilential cesspool was diverted to the sewers and gradually covered at the beginning of the 20th century.

(Illustration) A 68-year-old woman was stuck for over two hours in the elevator of her building located in the hypercentre of Paris (3rd district), Sunday, September 27. She told Le Parisien that the technician, who was supposed to help her, was blocked by the police because of the annual car-free day organized by the municipality.

During the municipal campaign, the EELV health assistant Anne Souyris, then head of the ecologist list in the 13th arrondissement, had proposed to unearth the Bièvre to make it "a major landscape and symbolic axis in this period of global warming".

The idea is not new. The City had started to think about it in the early 2000s, but had abandoned this project which had been too expensive at the time. This stream has in the meantime been partially discovered at Haÿ les Roses since 2016 and the river should flow again in the neighboring towns of Arcueil and Gentilly (Val-de-Marne) by 2021.

The opportunity to bring freshness

"The quality of the water has greatly improved and there is no longer any justification for the water from this river not flowing into the sewers and pouring into the wastewater treatment plant of Achères. “, Defended Alice Timsit, adviser of Paris EELV. "Rehabilitating this river buried for more than a century is a unique opportunity to bring freshness to the city and to create a real ecological corridor", she argued.

 Good news, there are fewer thermal strainers in France © Jacques van Dinteren / Istock.com The average energy consumption of housing in Paris is estimated at 237 kWh / m2 and per year 38%, that is magnitude of the drop in the number of excessively energy-intensive housing in Caen. The Calvados prefecture is the best representative of a new dynamic: there are fewer thermal strainers, according to an analysis published by SeLoger.com. What is a thermal strainer? We are talking about real estate here.

And to add: "The progressive rehabilitation of the Bièvre will (also) make it possible to recreate a biological and aquatic continuity up to the Seine, making it possible to lower the temperatures and to favor the development of biodiversity, in great fragility" .

The project aims to run the 6 km long section of Paris in Kellerman Park (13th century), René-Le Gall square (13th century), the Natural History Museum (Ve) and rue Berbier-du-Mets " where the coast is the lowest and where there will be little to dig…. », Indicated the elected ecologist.

The centrists who had also included the Bièvre in their program during the last municipal elections voted in favor of the wishes of the ecologists. "Delighted to see that our proposal to unearth the Bièvre to create a vegetated promenade and islands of freshness arouses the adhesion", quipped Maud Gatel, president of the MoDem Group, Democrat and Ecologists.

“The feasibility study will be launched in 2021,” said Dan Lert, deputy (EELV) in charge of ecological transition.

It will be based on previous studies carried out by the Atelier parisien d'urbanisme (APUR) e and the Paris Region Institute (formerly IAURIF) and a monitoring committee associating the Mayors of the 5th and 13th arrondissements, elected officials and representatives associative will also be created.
