Re: Is Le Chaux du Fonds in Southern Switzerland?

This is veering way off topic but I got a question for Odileson the history meister.

A friend of mine who lived in Neuchatel told me that when they connected Lake Neuchatel with Lake Bienne it dropped the level of Lake Neuchatel enough to provide additional real estate along the shore. I had never heard that and tried to look up more information but failed at the time to find anything. Got any more details on that?
Can't remember where I saw this, but there was a whole engineering project to equilibriate the levels of the 3 lakes, (Morat, Bienne and Neuchâtel) in order to prevent widespread flooding of the whole 3-lake region.
