It's a pretty common function for a curb cock (the type of valve you seem to be describing) to drain the "house" side of the line when it is shut off. This is a desirable feature which helps prevent water from standing and potentially freezing in the pipe on the side that's shut off. Maybe you just need to improve the drainage under the curb cock so water doesn't rise in the access pipe when you shut it off.
