for me it looks like waterway=weir
"Solid check dams usually have water flowing over only a small part of their width and
are designed to handle sudden increases in water flow."
Are you sure that thing depicted on image is not also a weir?
And "designed to handle sudden increases in water flow." is applicable to
any sanely constructed waterway engineering.
on Wikipedia weir page.
Or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Grial%C3%ABces_cuecenes.jpg with description
"During periods of high river flow, this nineteenth century weir of porphyry stone on
a creek in the Alps would have significantly more water flowing over it."
