This affected settlement in the area because people barely had access to water. This caused people's crops to die and them to have food limitations. The only exception was if you live by a water source, such as the Nile River. They could use this water to water their plants. This would also have an effect on people because they would have to find other ways to get food if their harvests were unsuccessful.
