|NGOs oppose new floating hotels on Egypt Lake Nasser|

The NGOs said that the addition of the hotels to Lake Nasser, which already has six such hotels, will constitute an "environmental catastrophe" and could threaten Egypt's strategic reserves of water. Lake Nasser's water is stagnant; a factor which helps bacteria replicate faster.
The committee found that any additional tourist activity without a commensurate increase in service facilities will represent an environmental risk.
"There is no need for additional hotels. 3000 boats already dump waste directly into the water, along with two ferries that transport passengers between the High Dam and Wadi Halfa," added El-Kaissouni.
