1960 January 9–January 11 – Aswan High Dam construction begins in Egypt..Before the dams were built, the Nile River flooded every year during late summer, when water flowed down the valley from its East African drainage basin..

The remaining archeological sites, including the Buhen fort have been flooded by Lake Nasser..Because of the lower turbidity of the water sunlight penetrates deeper in the Nile water.. Because of this and the increased presence of nutrients from fertilizers in the water, more algae grow in the Nile.. This in turn increases the costs of drinking water treatment. Apparently few experts had anticipated that water quality in the Nile would actually decrease because of the High Dam..When Northern Rhodesia became the Republic of Zambia, Kaunda would become its first President-On his 47th birthday, Vice-President Richard M.
