Saint Guérin, patron of the herds, gave his name to the valley and to the dam built between 1957 and 1961. It contributes to filling Roselend by means of a connecting pipe between the reservoirs which function like communicating vessels.

Its water surface is 50 ha and its depth of 70m for a capacity of 13 million m3. Its thin vaulted structure is 250m long. Each year it receives the equivalent of twice its storage capacity.
