a spring is groundwater as well.

if there are parts that are in pipes, will the qanat be interrupted? If
vertical shafts are not present, it is not a qanat (e.g. short enough to
not require these shafts)?

my suggestion would be to add a "typically" before "with shafts visible
from the surface", because it would seem strange to need a different main
tag just because the shafts aren't visible for one reason or the other
(e.g. hidden on purpose)
