This chapter explains the key environmental changes that have come about in Wadi Allaqi as a result of the construction of the Aswan High Dam. Clearly, the most significant impact is the presence of a large body of water in this otherwise hyperarid environment, but this has had further implications in terms of the formation of new soils through new patterns of sediment accumulation and loss. The flora and fauna of the area have also responded to this change.
