The way I interpret it:


The default state (no tags) is:


water always flows


The seasonal, intermittent and ephemeral tags says


For these times, the explicit state is: the water always flows, is intermittent, or is ephemeral

For all other times, the default state is: the water never flows


Explicit state always overwrites default state.


The only thing left to specify now is the priority of the 3 keys. If two or more of them overlap in their explicit state for the same timeframe, which one has priority, or is it simply considered a tagging error?

If I’ve understood it correctly, I would tag that as:





Yes, it would work.
