There seem to be many things we just assume; here is an eye opener.

Egypt's immense underground water potential makes the nation one of the top three water rich country in the continent!

The amount of Egypt’s ground water storage is estimated to be 55,200 km3, while Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Eritrea, Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda combined have only 27,558 km3.

According to the research funded by DFID, Ethiopia’s rank in underground water reserve is also far behind Egypt as it is the 13th richest in Africa with 12,700 km3."

Piece of advice to Egypt - better to focus on the weightier matter rather than playing the old game! Egypt - develop your immense underground water potential together with donors and international community; and you will be one of the top three water rich country in the continent. http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/7/2/024009/article
