Hi
No, drainage ditch is"Water Hazard" (see definition WH). If not marked is considered LWH.

Why do you say it is considered a LWH rather than a WH?

Thanks Doug,
correct observation, better specify.
Become LWH by definition if is impossible to drop behind the water hazard under Rule 26-1b.
Regards.
