It was the Awan Dam. Your Posts were awesome because you had a lot of voice and great information. And you're right why won't they plan ahead?
It's the Aswan Dam! Duh! They built it to control the Nile's floods. Which it think is pretty much pointless, considering that the Nile did that itself. But hey, I didn't make or plan the dam! Oh, you thought I did?! As far as I'm aware, I didn't. :)
