Aswan High Dam

The Aswan High Dam is a dam in the Nile River in Aswan, Egypt. Since 1950's, most people call the Aswan High Dam or High Dam. This dam is filled up with rocks and it can control floods. This is good because flooding from the Nile to Aswan has been bad. So with the High Dam, there won't be as many floods. That is a reason why the High Dam is a good part of the Nile.
