I wrote "That water is not deep" but it was marked wrong. What would that be in German?

Dieses Wasser. It is very unusual to use der/die/das as demonstrative pronouns in front of a noun, since they couldn't be distinguished from definite articles, at least in writing. In speaking they can be stressed ("Das Wasser"/"das Wasser").
