Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have drawn a river, but in the wrong direction (from sea to source).

Is there a way to reverse it?
Or do I have to re-draw it?

If using the iD editor just click on the river, and push the << button (with the tooltip "Make this line go in the opposite direction").

In recent versions it's right-click now.

In the menu of your editor should be a button reverse ways, in P2 theres an Arrow in the little menu, in JOSM its R reverse point and select the way and make your pick even ID should have a similar selecton or just ask reverse in the help menu.
