Public Utilities

A long time ago I posted some snapshots of different manhole covers found in Portland. I came upon this one recently. I wonder if it came from another city? It says "The  Bureau of Water Supply." Our local water company is the Portland Water District

I've never seen one of these opened  before. I wonder how often these are used for actual emergencies? I probably  wouldn't even think of using one of these during  an emergency.
