Valves on buried water lines are below the frost line so they don't freeze. Usually they are inside pipes buried vertically, with a cap labeled water. This tool, as others have stated plugs into the valve to open or close the valve. Still in use by the city I work for.

Black Widows love to live in the water shut off valve boxes here. That tool is very handy on the rare occasions it is needed.
