    A seed bank for all eternity, that can be flooded by a rainstorm. Note - not melt, just rain, which tends to happen in Spring time.

    Right near the front: "there’s been water intrusion at the front of the tunnel every single year". So it's not a new problem at all - certainly nothing to do with global warming - it's just crappy engineering and/or construction.
