Water Intake Station near St. Louis

water_intake-0303

This structure is in a farmer’s field near the Mississippi/Missouri Confluence. It’s surrounded by a rusty fence. While I don’t know exactly what it is, it appears to be some sort of water intake, possibly for flood control as it is definitely within the flood plain.
