Used a 289 cubic inch Ford engine back in the day on a Texas ranch for pumping water out of a river for irrigation system involving an irrigation rotating 'gun' and long pipes. (winter wheat)
Was a soggy, muddy mess changing that pipe though... :!:

Soggy muddy mess, sounds about right. Welcome to my world!

Finis, I'm guessing it's:

A) a movie set
-or-
B) a Nuclear test town

I think Finis might be right about a movie set. I notice a golf cart in front of the pickup truck.
Is this a movie set for "Back to the Future"?

Correct. Movie set. This is Blondie Street at "The Ranch" a Warner Brothers studio back lot where many TV shows and some movies were filmed. The original buildings were built in the 1930's or 40's. There have been fires and only a few of the original homes remain. It used to be much larger with city areas, a western area, and more. The top photo shows the Partridge Family house and, to the right, the I Dream of Jeanie house. The Jeanie house is now the office for Ranch operations. Most of the houses are unfinished inside with interiors filmed on sound stages. The Bewitched house, home of my youthful celebrity crush Elizabeth Montgomery, is here. Griswald's from Vacation, Lethal Weapon, Gidget, Flying Nun. Interesting that we keep seeing this neighborhood in movies and TV but don't know it.

Good eye on the golf cart Steinie. Another clue is that there are no lines in the street, no house numbers, and no traffic signs.

Here is a mini tour https://youtu.be/Fn63pr_ri_8. I think there are still guided tours for the public.

It may be a splash guard for a urinal under a black light. Not that I've had any experience with photographs of that. (cough)

James, Mikom, ha ha ha ha.

Spacekdet, No but that would be a good what is it thing. Your guess is in the general direction of the right answer.

Is it a reverse lightning strike? The ground shoots up a series of lighting bolts that are absorbed by the clouds above. (I just made all that up)
