    Bund, je crois qu'en français on dit simplement barrage, on ne fait pas la distinction dans notre langue entre bund et dam.... le seul autre mot qui s'en approche est digue (endiguer)

    Bund is by the way a loanword in English, it is borrowed from Urdu / Hindi (in which this word is borrowed from Persian)
