As I understand it should not be difficult. You must have planted papaya 6-8 ft between plants and rows. All you need to do is to raise the soil between rows and plants. You will get a bed similar to what one makes for say planting any vegetable. While laying drip ensure water doesn’t go to stem directly.

You need to get the water removed urgently - Papaya will not survive waterlogging. Even 2-3 days of waterlogging will be disastrous.

Water logging in papaya can be dangerous for the plants. Do raise beds ASAP and avoid water logging at any cost. You can raise beds even if plant is small.

Please don’t plant again in areas that could be submerged.
I think you can plant papaya anytime of the year - or at least I did.
