Very true, especially in an industrial setting. 

BTW, I was thinking of those special underwater lights that are used for making the water other colors. 

Is waterway a good key for the other things? I mean, these are more sub-features of a larger thing. 

What about waterworks=* ?

But as i don't use waterway for much beyond streams and drains, i don't have much experience in tagging more complicated stuff. 

Isn't there a waterway group (that chimed in on waste disposal) that would have a more informed opinion?
