Hi Peter, I think it could be useful if you would descript what you mean by "import", because "import" has a very specific meaning here in the OSM world.

Why do you want to "import"? Also please describe the source of the file regarding copyrights and accuracy. Please just edit your question text or add a new comment.

Hi Peter,

you should get familiar with OpenStreetMap mapping by mapping some features in the area around you using an editor for experienced mappers like JOSM before importing any data. Don't forget to read and understand the Import Guidelines which apply to every import. If you violate these guidelines, your import will be reverted.

Best regards

Michael

You also need to consider whether the data is appropriate to be imported to OSM at all. Contour lines definitely shouldn't be imported, and a "flood line" may or may not. If you mean the extent of a previous flood or a floodplain, then that probably wouldn't be appropriate either.
