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

JOSM complains that a highway (highway=residential) crosses an underground waterway (waterway=stream; tunnel=culvert). Since the two don’t actually “touch”, do I need to add a node to make them connect anyway? Any available topological rules I should be aware of?

Hi, just add layer=-1 on the culvert. This shows the relation between the two objects, (the highway implied as layer=0 with the culvert below tagged layer=-1).

Just looked and see you need the layer=-1 on both culverts. Also I notice the stream is joined to the Rue du Pavillon.

Sorry I mistakenly put a comment on the changeset instead of answering here.

Just to be clear, the tag that should be used here is "layer", not "level".

I've fixed the use of level instead of layer.
