[HOT] How to incorporate WASH data into OSM

hi Jose, Dale,

On the topic of a standard tagging schema, there's the start of something
on the wiki:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:pump

The pump key has already got some use:

http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/?key=pump#overview

It would be great if this could be extended to suit your needs. Some things
would be easily done (PUMP_TYPE, FLOW_RATE), but others such as the time
it's been failed for would presumably take some extra thinking. I'm sure we
could get it worked out though!

Cheers, Joseph
