Humans have affected Egypt’s environment in
both positive and negative ways. The Egyptian
environment consists of deserts, dry land and the
River Nile. Some ways humans have adapted include
farming and irrigating land along the Nile. Humans
depend on the river as it is their source of water
used for bathing, cooking, drinking and irrigation. It
also provides them fish to eat. Humans have modified
the land by dumping their sewage into the water, and
have caused severe pollution. The Egyptians had built
the Aswan Dam in the 1960’s to prevent the annual
flooding of the Nile River. But after the completion
of the dam, the soil was lacking essential nutrients
causing people to use fertilizers spreading harmful
chemicals.
