One of the weirs on Holland Creek in Ladysmith, Vancouver Island.
Weirs were constructed on the Holland Creek in the early 1900's to collect water to wash coal at Transfer Beach. A wooden flume diverted water to a reservoir to supply the coal washing bunkers at the current site of the horseshoe pitch at Transfer Beach Park.
Some of that wooden flume can be seen in the water above the weir.

We don't see a lot of them here in the west.
