In case of waterway=fish_pass I think that a new waterway is OK as
- it is drastically different from other defined waterways- is not a navigable waterway
- is not redefining already mapped objects

> While writing > https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Hydropower_water_supplies <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Hydropower_water_supplies>>  it was asked to not clutter waterway=* with spillway since it was a specific usage of a man made canal.> Such ideas lead to separate waterway nature, usage and sometimes supporting infrastructure to get a tagging model with 3 different corresponding keys.> A comprehensive table of waterways natures has been set here : > https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:waterway#Values <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:waterway#Values>
