A covered reservoir is a large man-made tank for holding water. When at suitable elevation, the installation supplies pressure to the water network below. Such reservoirs are hence functionally equivalent to water towers.

How to map

Draw an area along outline of the reservoir. If that is infeasible, set a node at the center of the reservoir.

Add man_made=reservoir_covered.
