How to Map

Draw an area area around the grounds of the water works or place a node node at the centre of the grounds.

Add man_made=water_works.

Formerly, this tag was often combined with landuse=industrial, which was seen as "Tagging for the renderer". The default style on osm.org now shows man_made=water_works directly.
