The river Lézarde is one of the rivers that flow from the plateau of the southern Pays de Caux in the Seine-Maritime département of Normandy into the Seine.
The river rises at Saint-Martin-du-Bec and passes Notre-Dame-du-Bec, Rolleville, Épouville, Montivilliers and joins the Seine at Harfleur.

Economy[edit]

In the past, the river was host to many watermills that powered machinery to process both wheat and oil.
