A semi-wetland meadow which is saturated with water throughout much of the year. Can be caused by poor drainage or the receipt of large amounts of rainwater or melted snow or in riparian zones.

It is adjacent to wetland=marsh off by this are flooded only periodically.

How to map

Draw the outline area of the area and tag it with natural=wetland + wetland=wet_meadow.

If there is a body of water or other land use within the area, this has to be treated as a Relation:multipolygon like an island.
