Description: In March 2005, the Mubarak Pumping Station - centerpiece of Egypt's ambitious Toshka Project to reclaim half-a-million acres of desert - was named one of the five most outstanding civil engineering achievements of the year by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). In addition to the pumping station itself, the Toshka Project also involves the construction of 50km (31 miles) of main transfer canal, four additional 22km (13.7 miles) side branches and 800m (.5 miles) of feeder pipeline.
