I worked construction for 4 years down in FL, most of it doing concrete. I cringed when I saw those forms, and the lack of backfill. The water in the forms didn't bother me, we used to pour into standing water because we were below the water line and there was no way to keep the water out. I'm sure they made some adjustments to the cement formula to account for it.
Just looking at the pictures you have, if the lines are where the outside of the blocks are going to go, then you should be good for the next step, the footers are going to be buried anyway, provided they are at the right grade.
Too bad I don't know anybody in that area that does construction.
Don't get overly worked up, they have to make it right, even if they have to do it all over again. It is a shame that they are making money doing this crap, make sure to get negative reviews out to the interwebs, maybe others can be saved from their nonsense.
