 Be careful, although the rule re OOB has been given fully and correctly, there is a lot more to taking relief from a water hazard.The comment about the 'reference point' is spot on but where the ball is to be dropped is a bit more complicated. See this link http://www.usga.org/Rule-Books/Rules-of-Golf/Rule-26/#26-1

What is the ruling? A.The player purposely stopped his moving ball. In match play, he lost the hole – Rule 1-2.

It depends on whether the margin of the water hazard is marked with yellow (water hazard) or red (lateral water hazard) stakes/lines.
