The Aswan High Dam

The Aswan High Dam is in Aswan, Egypt across from the Nile River. It was built between 1960-1970 it was built with turbines. There may not be a lot of fish in the area because since the Dam has been built there has been a large decrease in fish. It is important because it was built to control flooding, and to provide water for irrigation. Some people think it is polluting water but there is no proof.
