Chestnut Oak
Chinkapin Oak
Sawtooth Oak
Post Oak
Swamp White Oak
White Oak
And they're being put into places where the broken Bradford pears and borer-ridden ashes once stood.

And it's not just oaks that are new to front yards & streets!
There's also
Siberian Elm (blight resistant)
London Planetree (improved Sycamore)
Cottonless cottonwoods (proven to be male, without the noxious seed)
Sassafras
Hackberry, improved varieties
Hickory
Serviceberry
Tulip poplar
Ginkgo
Ok, great.
Cut down that water oak and replace with one of the above.

Water oak root systems rot very easily and then they come down taking anything they can with them. Yours looks bad at this young age so rot has probably started, so in a few years you can just remove the fallen tree from your house and replant with a better choice of oak.
