    It was in the 1st century, under the reign of the emperor Vespasian, that a 10 km long water conveyance system was built, allowing the waters of Arcier to be transported to the centre of Vesontio. In spite of the multiple water resources available around Besançon, the springs of Arcier were chosen because of their altitude and their important flow. The work was ruined in the 5th century and it was not until 1854 that the Arcier springs were once again tapped. They were to provide most of Besançon's water supply for over a century.
