Transcript of Egypt's Water

Water resources in Egypt are becoming scarce. The people in Egypt are facing water needs which is caused by the growing population. Every year one million people come to Egypt to live. In 2025 Egypt is expected to have a huge population of 86 million people.

Researchers said, " The Nile River is very polluted, including the canals that branch off of it." The waterways are polluted by direct and indirect waste produced by the industrial facilities, and the sewage of towns and villages among them.

The nile river runs about 6,650 km through six countries from its headwater in Burundi to the Mediterranean Sea. Only 1,600 km run through Egypt.

Cairo is located immediately upstream of the Nile delta, which is about 250 km from the Mediterranean sea. Just as the NIle is the primary source of fresh water, at the same time it's also the primary receptor of wastewater and drainage generated by different activities.
