That tag is probably emergency=suction_point - seems much better to tag that rather than identifying the whole pond. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag%3Aemergency%3Dsuction_point >> 3) =access_point "A sign number which can be used to define your >> current position in case of an emergency" - 5555 uses >> - Remove: the similar tag 'highway=access_point" is much more common >> and was approved. > > I have seen, in company parking lots "evacuation assembly point #6" or > signed for some floor/building.
