Clearly what we need is a generic water encapsulation technique that would
allow the wet water to pass through a tunnel without leaking into the
surrounding domain.

This encapsulation technique results in a design that might be called a
"storm drain system" which, together with a proper sewage drain system, we
could call a "SIN mode" drainage system. 

We could also multiplex the rain water with the sewage water in a
multi-mode drain system. Internet drain specialists tend to take religious
points of view on whether we should have separate drain systems, should
combine them, or outlaw one in favor of the other. But, clearly,
encapsulation is the favored approach.
