Bottom bracket woes

I have a 2011 specialized enduro, and am having BB trouble.

I replaced the GXP BB with a fresh one as the non drive side had seized. The new BB was full of the blue sram grease, so I didn't bother added any more.

After two weeks of mostly dry riding (the odd shower and one careful rinse with garden hose), I thought I'd take a look make sure it was OK.

The non drive side was very notchy and rough, not smooth at all. No dirt, that I could see, and lots of grease. The bottom bracket was full of water (no drain hole). A great big pool of it.

Drive side was smooth and full of grease.

What's going on?
