Useful combination
Status: In use

Use waterway=drain for minor artificial waterways, typically lined with concrete or similar, used to carry storm water or grey-discharge or possibly a stream that has been channelised.

See also waterway=ditch for simpler non-lined artificial drainage ditches. For very large artificial waterways created for carrying water or for transport consider using waterway=canal. Use man_made=pipeline where water, or other materials are carried underground or on the surface in pipes.

How to map

See also: Waterways

Create a linear way in the direction of flow, connecting the ends appropriately to other waterway elements to create a routable network.
