History:
The Siphon (or Sifon) is a hamlet in the town of Damme on the spot where the Damse Vaart is crossed by two parallel channels: the Sifon Canal and the Leopold Canal. It is named for the hydraulic artwork that worked until the First World War: the siphons.
The Damse Vaart was a waterway between Bruges and Sluis since the beginning of the 1820s, which was permanently maintained for shipping. The Leopold Canal and the Ship Donkey Channel are drainage channels, with a lower, varying water level. The solution to make all channels work was the construction of two siphons. The first was built with the construction of the Leopold Canal, a second few years later with the construction of the Schifon Canal. The Leopold Canal siphon had four throughput openings, which had five of the Schifon Canal. The Damse Vaart could also drain with 6 drainage openings in the Leopold Canal.
