[Tagging] Lake or Pond

With artificial I meant it is a hole with a plastic foil. Everything except
sand is artificial and needs to be maintainer in this region.

I have been contemplating if these lakes are also used as a reservoir for
irrigation myself. However I can't confirm or deny this.

I'll keep the lake tags then, no pond.

PS: I hope my response to the digest gets filed properly.

... or a reservoir, as Warin points out.
