This. My $.02

Just leave it be. Let the league coordinator or tournament director figure out how they want to deal with it based on the event and time of year.

The one idea I have is already employed at a few courses, and that is to mow so that the the OB / relief area grass/weeds gets higher. This creates a natural, clear boundary that is also visible from the tee box. So, if you have a good relationship with the grounds crew at the park, just show them where to mow and not to mow.

Simply marking it as OB might be the best the solution? I'd prefer to widen the fairway and utilize that area during the summer months.

I'm unsure how it should be marked. Is there any other designation I'm missing that might work in this situation?
Add this to the tee sign: "Water is OB"

When there is no water present, no problem. When there is water, there is no confusion.

Add a little sign below the tee sign that says "Take Casual Relief from Water Perpendicular to the Line of Play"
