OK, interesting case, what do you propose for the conditional tagging? Do
you have specifics how much is "high water"? I guess this would be needed to
describe the system adequately. If you wanted to make it simple, you could
describe the situation in the description tag and ignore complex tags, but I
guess that's too easy ;-) and I agree that it would be nice to map this
situation in high detail.

cheers,
Martin
