This is the fresh-water version of my sewer picture from the other day (Sewer Askew). In that post I rued the misalignment of the entitled sewer cover with the its surrounding concrete in which it was mounted.
Today I saw this water line access cap. As with the sewer cap title, it is also not in alignment with the square-ish lines around it. The good news is, the lines that encircle the water cap are saw marks. Some workman (or workwoman) with a good sense of order saw the off-kilter water cap and decided to dig it up (and re-align it).
(They could just twist the cap.)
