#8974 closed defect (fixed)

Validator warns on highway/waterway sharing the same way for dams.

Reported by: AndrewBuck Owned by: team

The 'Unusual tag combinations' portion of the validator code checks to see if a single way is tagged with both a highway=* and a waterway=* tag, and throws a warning if this is the case. Although this is probably correct in most cases, there are many highways which run across dams and for these the road segment across the dam is often tagged as a highway and waterway=dam. The waterway=dam wiki page does not really say how such dams should be tagged, but it is in fairly common use and seems like a resonable way to do it.

My suggestion would be to not flag a warning in the special case of a dam (and any other waterway tags that might make sense, although none come to mind right now).
