A hydrograph used by the Army Corps of Engineers?Never heard of that being used by them especially around a bridge.Here in Pennsylvania they built reservoirs and dams.Maybe this is something I don't know of.

It's not a out house it's a hydrograph used by the army corps of engineers.

Looks like a stream guaging station, although (currently) I don't see one listed on the NWS/USGS website. Closest one is here: http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=meg&gage=f...

Might be a stream gauge installation. Looks like there's a solar panel mounted on the utility pole next to the building and a conduit coming out/going into the building near the bottom at the lower right. In Illinois they sometimes use what look like large diameter corrugated metal pipe culverts with roofs on them to house the gauge equipment. Some are also small buildings but I've never seen one made of wood.

Is this the bridge once known as Walker's bridge, or Walker's levee bridge?
