Features" page but has no own page and no description), the infiltration
basin most times is not filled with water, so the mapping should be
I added a proposal for landuse=infiltration_basin, and the discussion
ended in adding an additional specification of the type of basin by
adding the tag basin=infiltration.
So I modified the proposal to basin=infiltration and open it for voting now.

Please vote for the proposal at
