The broken pump is just letting water dump into the yard and road
Like most towns in Mexico water reservoirs are built on a nearby hill to create gravity pressure. Usually the water source is much lower than the reservoir so it has to be pumped up. The problem today is the pump is broken and they are letting the water run out in the road. In the past rather than having two pumps they can switch the pump has to be repaired. We'll see this time if Melaque runs out of water and for how long.
