That's true, but IMHO the "wrong" way is tagged there: the culvert
should go on the waterway, i.e. where it is.

I also saw another strange thing there: your waterways are tagged
oneway=yes. What does that mean? Is this for boat-traffic? Do the
boats pass the culvert? According to the wiki oneway is used for
access-restrictions, i.e. it is a legal tag, not a physical one.
