The Canal de Montech is a 10.9 km waterway in southwestern France connecting the Canal de Garonne in Montech and the Tarn River in Montauban. It is also known as the Montauban Branch (French: l’embranchement de Montauban ).
A lock at Moissac also connects the Canal de Garonne to a lower section of the Tarn. A proposal exists to create a waterway ring, including the Canal de Montech, by restoring navigation to the stretch of the Tarn between Moissac and Montauban.
