The  release of the Big Water from the Pump System that Fox BLOCSS asks
about is not worth points for M02.  M02 requires that the Big Water is
moved *only* by turning the valves, not by hitting the Pump System.

M02 - FLOW
*Move a Big Water (one time maximum) to the other team’s  field *only by
turning the Pump System’s valve(s).
