Short summary
This paper provides a discussion related to the origin of surface failures in the graben of Aguascalientes. Observations indicate that some of these failures are older than the beginning of pumping, suggesting a natural tectonic origin. Some questions regarding surface failures are formulated, for instance, are the surface failures caused by the combined stresses of pumping and tectonism? Is the current tectonism sufficient to cause some surface or deep failures?
