According to Abdel Fatah, this is the only threat to the Step Pyramid’s structure as, according to the inspection committee, the pyramid is in a good structural condition.
He added that the deterioration of the pyramid was due to climatic effects, environmental erosion factors and the leakage of subterranean water, not to mention the 1992 earthquake. The restoration plan includes consolidating the pyramid’s underground tunnels, monitoring the cracks, restoring the wall decorations and inspecting the natural ventilation inside the pyramid and the southern tomb.
