Places near the Nile River

Aswan Dam

The reason they built the dam was to control the floods Provide water for irrigation, and generate hydroelectricity. They built it also so the water wouldn't go and destroy crops such as cotton that would go down the river and leave the farmer with nothing.

Farming

Farming by the Nile River is a good process depending on what side of the river you are on. If you were on the "Black Lands" you would have a great farming year for the soil. If you were on the "Red Lands" your crops would die from the heat and bad soil.
