The previous owner of my home used a contractor who, from my opinion, improperly installed our kitchen countertop, leaving us with a situation where when water collects behind the sink it is dripping below the sink (and actually behind the cabinet). You'll see, from the pictures below, it appears the laminate was improperly measured and the contractor's solution was to glue an additional strip of laminate. The strips are now coming apart.

We're planning to buy a new countertop at some point, but we'd love suggestions on how we could stop-gap the problem, for the time-being.

To be clear: The faucet is not leaking. The water collects behind the sink because water, from dishwashing, splashes back there.
