Explanation:
See,

http://www.denverwater.org/WaterServiceSupport/HomeownerResp...

"A stop box is used to turn the water service on and off to a property. It is usually located in the public right-of-way, sometimes in the sidewalk. The property owner is responsible for the stop box and the city does require that it be operable at all times so that water service can be turned off in case of an emergency."
