I would expect water rescue station
to be a base of operation, unlikelyto have someone looking at peoplethere and rather contain equipmentincluding boats for rescue at larger range.
I would expect lifeguard tower to 
have direct lifeguard presenceduring swimming season, lookingat people in the water.

I have not looked at actual use,
if they are few facto synonymsthen situation is different.

But it is not mentioned in proposal
