Billion Year Old Water Bottle

What always gets me about stories like this is, how do they know? First, how do they know they water has been isolated? Did they crawl the cavern and test for leaks? Secondly, how do they know it’s been a billion years?

The other thing that gets me is that those are legitimate science questions. Shouldn’t science writing cover the sciency parts?
