Im looking at the canvec feature of this (along with the others related)
147011* [image: Way] <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Elements#Way> Single
line watercourse None, non isolated, intermittent waterway=stream;
water=intermittent; name=*; fixme=Feature type and
Watercourse, isolated, intermittent waterway=riverbank; water=intermittent,
the proposal page is here
and the canvec feature page is here
I worked on a sample here, just outside of Empress, Alberta (in
Saskatchewan) I just guessed on the landuse=meadow; natural=grass (someone
local can fix it) .. with photos.
But for the riverbank etc.
natural=water (is standard to vaguely describe some type of water)
unfortunately we dont use natural=water;water=lake, but we DO use
natural=wetland ( with wetland=marsh for non-flowing water)
but water=river isn't used. nor is natural=river used. yet
waterway=stream is used.
So i think that waterway=tidal should be used, with natural=water.
So for the main river parts (the main waterflow area), i propose
natural=water; waterway=riverbank; name=*; source=*; attribution=* (if
then for the river banks (the sides where after a rainfall it's not
distinguishable, but in a drout it's a sand area & if left longer plan-life
would grow. So the water level is 'intermittent'. Hence the original
value of water=intermittent, so i propose
natural=wetland; name*; source=*; attribution=*(if needed)
As tagging it was "natural=wetland" where the polygon is directly inside the
"waterway=riverbank" ... makes this wetland flooded. So i think it makes
