Ideally, all riverbanks that are part of the river are also added into the
relevant river relation, but i think this mapping is currently incomplete.

A programmatic way to try to do this in turf could be:

   - Extract the way/centerline of the river needed
   - Convert the line into a polygon by creating a buffer around it (20m
   should work)
   - Find all water polygon/relations that intersect with the buffered
