    At the base of the Rocky Valley dam wall, there are about half a dozen of these - what are they?

    I can tell you the steel is reo, maybe 20dia.

    The white post is reminiscent of post / boxes over ground water test or sample points.

    Groundwater piezos for monitoring. Guessing it forms part of dam integrity monitoring.
