|Definition:||A flow control device|
There is no current way to tag sluice gates and discharge points.
Sluice gates are often used in agricultural areas to control water flow from rivers to other waterways. In some cases, sluice gates are in pairs with one on either side of a dike. (See wikipedia:Sluice.)

Representing a ditch as continuing to the river does not capture the flow control nature of the sluice gate.
See linked pictures above.
Like other values in waterway=* sluice gates and discharge points are features in the waterway.
