exclamation mark

This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: utility=power.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct. Any such change will be reverted.

Please note

  • Do not perform mass retagging of power street cabinet objects. This would be considered a mechanical edit.
  • Don't retag power cabinets just for the purpose of 'correcting' the tag but take the opportunity to review the object and add useful information. In particular it is very desirable to add the power=* key if those tags are missing. When known also add the operator.
