Lid A series of 36 artistic lids created as a result of a collaboration between the Lisbon sewage company Águas do Tejo Atlântico, and the manufacturer Saint-Gobain (PAm).
The project called Há Art No Esgoto - there is art in the sewers, was done on the occasion of International Sanitation Day (November 19), and its purpose is to make people look at the sewer covers. On the caps appear central places in the city of Lisbon, with the illustrations made by Gilberto Gaspar.

The current cover features the Monument of the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos), in memory of the Portuguese explorers

Although the model name PAMREX appears on the lid, it is not similar to other lids of the same model.
