Clark,sounds good to me the way you explained it.

Without looking at this one I'm just speculating, but there are gauges that sit over a well bored close by the river and connected by a pipe. This allows a float to respond to changes in the level without having to be exposed to the current, debris, icing, etc. The concrete pillar will house the gauge (originally a paper drum recorder read by visiting). Now it usually contains electronics and communication equipment for remote reading.

Clark,if this is the water gauging station then where is the rest of the equipment for the station unless it's just a height marker for the water.

Probably associated with the stream gauging station shown on the topo map:
