Water Supply Network Covers in Lviv

Hundreds of these pre-Soviet small round or square manhole covers are scattered across Lviv. I believe they cover utilities connected to the city's water supply network, specifically valves.

Pomiar Miasta is Polish for "measurement of the city"; PPML most likely stands for Punkt Pomiara Miasta Lwow (Measurement Point for the City of Lviv). These have something to do with creating the plan for the city for the sewers, water supply, etc.
