Sadat City Station
Sadat City Station, located half-way between Cairo and Alexandria, was built following a land acquisition of 27 acres in 1986. It is used for training under the NICHE project and as a base of operations for field research in the new lands area, as well as a point for the delivery of analytical services to stakeholders in the area. The main brick building contains two interior courtyards and four ranges of rooms used as offices, laboratories, a lounge and kitchen, and accommodation for four staff members who overnight at the station during the week. The station is surrounded by different types of farmers producing mainly horticultural crops using drip and sprinkler irrigation systems. The communities of Sadat City derive their water from Nile canals as well as underground wells.
