ISMAILIA EGYPT - AUGUST 26: Water appears in one of the early holes dug for a major expansion to the Suez Canal in Ismailia, Egypt on August 26, 2014. Critics question the decision to build the expansion so close to the previous canal where ground water levels may be higher and construction more expensive. The new expansion is planned to double the capacity for shipping from the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea. (Photo by David Degner/Getty Images)
