Water not coming water pump - but

The water doesn't seem to be coming from the main water pump.

It is dripping by a "small black plastic box" under the crank shaft.

Can some one identify what the black box is? It has a cable or something about 1//4 inch thick coming out the top.

There is a large water hose just above the black box. Is that where the auxiliary water pump is?

Thanks for the help.

Comment: As the car is sitting, nice and cool, the drip drip of water continues to drip out.
Thanks for the help
