No. OSM is no free geospatial data hoster and our data model is not
suitable for this usecase. Hydrological data is 3D, OSM is 2D (with some
hacks 2.5D).

Hydrological data does not comply with this rule and that's why there is
only very few subsurface data (like pipelines) exists at OSM.

Best regards
