The Deûle
Deûle
(Dutch: Deule) is a river of northern France
France
which is channeled for the main part of its course (from Lens to Lille). The upstream part is still partly free-flowing and is known as the Souchez. The Deûle
Deûle
flows into the Lys (right bank) in Deûlémont. The Souchez
Souchez
is formed from the union, in the village of Souchez, of two smaller brooks, called the Carency and the Saint-Nazaire.

The channeled part comprises two branches:

the high gauge canal known as Canal
Canal
de la Deûle
Deûle
which ensures the connection between the channeled Lys and the Scarpe (a tributary of the Scheldt) in Douai, the Canal
Canal
de Lens, fed by the Souchez, which connects Lens with the Canal
Canal
de la Deûle
Deûle
at Courrières.

Immediately downstream of Lens, the channel is unusually elevated compared to the neighboring banks, as a result of mining depressions. The Deûle
Deûle
flows through the departments of Pas-de-Calais
Pas-de-Calais
and Nord, and the towns of Lens, Wingles, Loos, Lille, Wambrechies
Wambrechies
and Quesnoy-sur-Deûle, before it flows into the Lys at Deûlémont. The Deûle
Deûle
does not yet profit from a Schéma d'aménagement et de gestion des eaux. References[edit]
