Sink filled with portland cement in the power plant

Sink filled with portland cement in the power plant

This is by far one of the strangest things I've ever seen in an abandoned building. The faucet was not only replaced with a stub, but the sink was filled with portland cement. Why would someone go through such trouble? The only thing I could think of was that perhaps, the bathroom was defunct, and sewer gases (or liquids?) were somehow rising through the dry pipe and creating an unpleasant situation.

This is similar to the sink in the creepy basement bathroom at my grandma's house when I was a kid. If I'm right, the faucet actually would have been below the surface of the cement. The thing between the valve handles was the control for the pop-up drain.
