The Pozer River and its bridges The Pozer River flows in the western sector of St. George. She heads north-east before flowing into the Chaudière River. It is she who crosses the beautiful park of the seven falls. The true founder of Saint-Georges, Jean-Georges Pfotzer, built on these banks a flour mill in 1818. This mill is demolished in 1960. The "Bridge of the Domain" is the first bridge of the Pozer to have existed. It is located near the outlet of the Pozer River, which is close to the Chaudière River. Its construction dates probably from the 1880s because in 1894 and 1895, the municipality carries out major repairs and in 1898, it is rebuilt. In 1999, it is reconstruction. The bridge remains in the same place but it is completely redone. It is being enlarged in the widening work of Route 271. The 1945 bridge is dynamited. Later, as part of the work on the Route verte, a footbridge is installed below.
