Soggy Soil Sours Egyptian Sandstones

Christina Reed, Geotimes

This article from Geotimes examines the threat posed by rising groundwater to ancient Egyptian monuments. The problem has several sources, including the rise of Egypt's water table over the last 30 years, the prevention of freshwater floods through the cities where the monuments stand, and leaking or non-existing sewage systems. Various solutions are also examined.
