I looked at this one (because it was so funny). But in version 1 the
tag was amenity=water drinking_water=no and was changed in version 2
to amenity=drinking_water drinking_water=no.
So maybe it's a well or tap whit water that is harmful to drink but
can be used to clean up or cool yourself off? But yes the original
authors are the ones who can resolve this.
