I'm kind of curious about this now. The closest tag in use might be
manhole=drain, though to me manhole is what it sounds like, a way for
maintenance personnel to climb down a hole to access pipes and equipment.
Oftentimes storm drains don't have true manholes but just a grate that can
be removed to clean the storm drain out (as in the above picture). Of
course, this wouldn't be the worse logical inconsistency in our tagging
One proposal  suggests using man_made=storm_drain "for storm drain in the
street", though it has no uses according to Taginfo.
