Proposed features/Torrent control structures
|Torrent control structures|
|Status:||Proposed (under way)|
|Applies to:||node ; way|
|Definition:||buildings used to control torrents|
|Rendered as:||like barrier=wall or waterway=weir|
There has been a discussion in the german OSM forum about torrent control structures in Austria (and other countries). We want to introduce two new tags for these torrent control structures: check_dam; beam_dam.
|A check dam is a drop structure to lower the speed of water flow. Unlike a waterway=weir a check dam isn't built to dam up water or diverte it into a channel.|
|Is a structure to hold back debris and trunks and to control the water flow.||
How to Map
|These structures can be drawn as nodes directly on the stream or as ways crossing the stream. It is possible to add tags like height=*|
