Aswan High Dam

Aswan High Dam, one of the world's largest dams, built on the Nile River in Egypt (1960–70), located 4 mi (6.4 km) south of the 1902 Aswan dam. The dam's hydroelectric generating station has a capacity of 10 billion kwh, and Lake Nasser, formed by the dam, has enough water to irrigate more than 7 million acres of farmland.
