Majority of the BB is in the substrate. Drain the water but leave things moist. Pack the interior with clean, crinkled up plastic to help hold things in place and cover with plastic to keep humidity in. Use a water jug to drain the water into and you'll even be able to re-fill with the old water (or a mix of the old/new).
