Conserving East Bank temples

Sherine Nasr, reporting on the work by various project teams including USAID, to conserve a number of archaeological monuments on Luxor's east bank, including important plans to lower the water table: "Since 1999, extensive sub-soil surveys and ground water detection have been conducted to help develop a technical solution for ground water mitigation by using drilling, pumping and computer simulation, and an implementation plan has been suggested. USAID is contributing LE40 million to cover construction costs and the local costs for the construction supervision."
