This is definitely a roof-deck terrace.
Explanation:
The idea of "agua" poses 3 possibilities:
1. presence of a swimming pool;
2. presence of gardens w/ incorporated fountains/irrigation;
3. a reference to a type (I don't know what) of "desagüe" or drainage system.
Your question justifies consultation with the client.

Explanation:
flat roof/deck roof/ terrace
techo terraza is flat roof or deck roof. It is difficult to try and include "agua" without any additional information about the context, here is a suggestion.
Good luck
