foundation problems

Why would any forms be left in a foundation?
The house was built in the 70's, has a sunken living room and all forms were left in place in that sunken living room. Had a drought then a lot of rain. The forms finished rotting out which left a tunnel letting the water came right into the house. Also have a lot of moisture seeping into the floor itself, moisture barrier problem?

How do you seal a foundation so you no longer have the moisture problems?

Please advise
