I wish to Officialise the whitewater:description=* Key so that documentation can be written regarding it. The Key is already in common use due to the proposal within WikiProject Whitewater Maps, and should be a simple matter of vote and implement. It is used in conjunction with the tag; whitewater=hazard


A community of (Kayakers, Canoeists, and Whitewater Rafters) can already be found on this Wiki and have started tagging rivers for human powered navigation. Having a definitive tagging system for them would be beneficial.
