I have received some questions on what a waterstop and keyway are... This sketch shows my detail. The waterstop is a barrier to any moisture that finds its way in between the footing and foundation wall. The keyway is a little notch in the footing to pour the foundation wall into. And here you can also see how the footing is asymmetrical. I am debating on whether to move all the insulation shown to the inside of the foundation wall [gasp!].
