Caldicott: If you put concrete on it, you know it’s going to keep going down into the water table. 
Gundersen: Right. 
Caldicott: And you know it’s going to keep contaminating the Pacific Ocean for the rest of time. 
Gundersen: Right. So the solution — there is no good solution — but the solution would be to bore holes underneath and constantly pull water out from under the buildings.

Caldicott: You are sacrificing the Pacific by leaving this stuff there for the rest of time, which will leak and drain consistently into the Pacific. 
Gundersen: You’re right. It needs to be constantly pumped out
