Art.6 Article 6
Art.6.1x The Departments of Navigation at Nancy and Strasbourg shall inspect the water-level measurement stations each month to ensure that they are functioning properly.

The officials carrying out the inspection shall make any necessary corrections and enter them in an inspection record book. These officials shall receive their instructions from the South-West Regional Office for Navigable Waterways and Navigation.
Art.6.3x Biweekly inspections shall be conducted at the six stations mentioned in article 1 as soon as the early-warning mark at the Custines station (2.15 m) has been reached.
