Transcript: An immense work of art, the Saint-Michel dam contains a vast mass of water known as Lake Saint-Louis. It represents the pinnacle of a huge construction project designed to control the erratic tides of the river water in the Neo-Paris basin.

Erected in the early 2060s; it is a system of dams, locks and reservoirs protecting the buildings and citizens of Neo-Paris from the damaging effects of flooding and rainwater. The Saint-Michel dam is at the heart of this fluvial structure and holds 65% of the total mass of water that is contained in the city artificially. This large-scale structure dominates the Saint-Michel quarter, protecting a substantial area of Mid-Paris.

The Lake Saint-Louis extends upstream of the Saint-Michel dam, and the most wretched areas of Deep Paris are located along its banks. The lake separates the most insalubrious zones (Slum 404) from the affluent districts (Saint-Michel). Further east, it surrounds La Bastille, sealing it off from the rest of the city.

Besides allowing the authorities to control the water levels, the Saint-Michel dam also serves as a hydroelectric facility, and generates a significant amount of power for the city.
