Does it make sence to use thalweg boundaries for water courses which is not used for navigation?

From my 2009 photo, it appears that the border is Thalweg, or at least middle of the ditch. I’ve attached one version of the photo. It’s 1 mb, so I apologize if it’s too large for some members.

I don't know whether the thalweg of the ditch or its south bank is the boundary, but the row of ex-trees was in the USA . They were to be removed by their owner (the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission), with the enthusiastic approval of the Canadian homeowners on the north side of the street.

Is the ditch the border? If so, isn't there more than one Canadian installation on U.S. soil here? Or are the (now non-existant) trees the border? But then again, what country cut them down?
Here's another one. The brown leash sign looks American. So can my dog enter the U.S. park if it has a leash attached? Cause I'm sure humans aren't allowed to enter myself at the spot. :-)
And yes, Google's border is misaligned in this area. I reported this to Google a few months ago and I received an email today that it was now fixed. Apparently not quite yet, eh?

My hunch is that the boundary line is the point between the tip of two boundary pillars.
