I don't think they are so much fed from underground sources as they are simply below the water table. Land below the water table is wettened by it and if sufficiently far beneath than water pools. If it can escape at ground level then it flows in creeks or rivers.
There was much more rain in great pyramid building times so there is certainly more water in undeveloped areas. However, where crops are grown a lot of water is pumped in and this affects the level of the water table. Proper irrigation won't raise it too much but ofttimes water is allowed to run off or soak in.
There are a few geologists with knowledge of Egyptology. You might try contacting one of them.
Keep in mind that while there was twice as much rain in ancient times it still rained principally in the winter and pyramid building season started in late-June. I believe it wrapped up around mid-February but this is more difficult to ascertain.
It's clear there are area with standing water, and they are not man made. I have enough background in Geology to see that. Again, you are ignoring the fact that they well up with water, and drain. There could have been more than one source. They may have feed numerous water deposits into one channel. I read those water deposits are feed by fractures in the rock, and that sometimes they stop filling, when the body of water becomes greater in pressure, that the inlet feeding it. Mineralization in the water can also contribute to shutting off the fissure. A study in Fossil Water. It's not static. It's always changing.
The Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System is the largest known fossil water aquifer in the world. Spanning more than 2 million square kilometers across Sudan, Chad, Libya, and Egypt, it contains more than 150,000 cubic kilometers of groundwater—more water than the Nile River discharges in 500 years.
As I said, there is plenty of water back behind the Pyramids. Yes, man took advantage of these water deposits, placing building in and around them. Once they exhausted the water, pumping took over.
The Nile is running out of water. A known fact. Libya has massive pumping operations, reaching deep into the desert, bleeding their aquifers.
