W6, Upper Mall Open Space

We don't really think this is a memorial, but would like to know what it is.

From London Gardens Online: "Upper Mall Open Space is a riverside public garden that occupies part of the former site of the West Middlesex Water Company's waterworks, which were demolished in 1965."

The object could be from the 60s, but what is it?  It's too small for a ventilation shaft, too low, surely, for a stink pipe. The texturing of the cement on the top could be intended to represent water - so a memorial to the Water Company? Mmmm....
