Sorry, I've just spent considerable time trying to figure this out and
it's frustrating me, I didn't mean to take it out on you or anyone

In the area listed above you have 2 admin boundary sections, one is
tagged as a river and the other is only an admin boundary, there is
also another section of river that isn't an admin boundary.

How can I only show the river sections, and hide the admin boundary
with no additional tags?
