Is there still a leak in the hole? (a small leak, because you can see that they were still pumping water out a couple of weeks ago.)

Pumping out the water has nothing to do with leaks. This is done to lower the water table on the site (which is below sea level) in order to remove the pressure from beneath that tent to push up the structure. It also helps with sealing off and waterproffing the site.

This is done in every construction site in Dubai, even on those distant from the coast line.
