Axum Drainage Project was a drainage project ran by the Axum Central Council from 5654 400A to 5723 400A. It was a major project carried out to drain the South Axum Sea to make way for the rapid expansion of New Axum. Over 5 years 100 tonnes of concrete dams were poured. Over 25 years a area of 15000 km2 was drained of water.

It took another 50 years to let the land dry out and be refined. Axiom Corp. bought a massive part of the land and built the ACC Complex.
